The OP is talking about an NJ, which came from the factory with +10 offset.

I did notice an anomaly in the tyre sizes I was looking at - a 265/65 was listed as OK up to 9.5" wide, but the 265/70 and 275/70 list 8.5" as maximum. Here in Australia, to be a legal fitment, the Tyre & Rim Association Manual is the bible. Yes, there is a difference between what works, and what's legal.
