I expect the rims will fit OK, but what size tyres are you planning to fit?

I think you'll find that 9" rims are too wide for those tyres to be legal in Australia - at a quick check, both of those sizes list 8.5" as maximum legal rim width.

Yes they will fit, my 265 bfgs are legal for 9 inch rim but be aware the rim is amost as wide as the tyre so they are very easy to scratch. I personally think +10 is to much offset but people do run them. My 17x9s are +35 and just sit nicely inside the guard.

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.

I will go one step further, there is a difference between what fits, what is legal and what works correctly from a technical point of veiw.

All tyre manufacturers of off road tyre's provide an optimal rim width and a rim width range for each particular size tyre and model within their range and these can even slightly differ for the same size tyre based on construction and design.
To get the best performance out of any tyre you should be aiming to use the opitim rim width or as close as you can within the approved design rim width range, and of course at the correct tyre pressure for the weight carried, terrain being traversed and the speed travelled.
If the rim is too narrow for the tyre then bead pinching and lower sidewall failures will be more common when off road.
If the rim is too wide then you will get increased shoulder and upper sidewall failures as well as increased rim damage when off road.

What looks cool and fashionable is not always the most reliable and safest.
Image or Substance?
I know what I always choose.

OJ.
