It will be time to replace the tires that came on our Borrego and I'm looking for something more aggressive/better in the snow. I'd also like to upsize slightly if I can. The 265/70/17s are only 1.5" taller and 1.1" wider than the stock tires, but the wheel wells on the Borrego seem pretty stuffed to begin with. A-arm clearance in the front seems tight too. Just wondering if anyone has gotten them to fit?

Only 1.5" taller and 1.1" wider? That's a big difference as tyres go.
Which is I why I was asking here if anyone had ever run them on a Borrego before? The tires I'm looking at can't be returned after they've been mounted so I need to be sure that they'll fit.

I don't think you would have any issues with width. I have the V8 and 265/60/18. That is the stock size. Compare those tire dimensions to what you are looking at.
