Have you done it? I've done it. wide (Dunlop, Yok) 265s on 9" wheels, ET45 with 13.25" ride height, (lower than that is baaaad) 5mm or 15mm spacer, plenty of room. The front can probably swallow 285s. The front is *not* the issue. (though stiff FCABs are a good idea, to limit fore/aft tire movement which can be problematic)
