To be honest, you need to fit the right size tire for your rims, and run with the correct aspect ratio. There are handling/safety risks in not staying in the right parameters.
Take a look at Victor Equipment Website, and Yokohama Advan Website for the possibilities.

Typically you can go up one size. You should be fine with 265's
