265/65 might work without modifications with the lift, and they also might rub just a touch. Its a close fit with the 19+. 245/70 do generally work though. I would say just bit the bullet and put what you want on though. I went with 265/70, and love them. Worth the effort of cutting, and its not that hard.

I'm mostly in mud and sand, so the wider tire will help keep you from sinking quite as much. For snow though, skinnier is better, that way you sink down into it. Wider also generally will impact mpg more, though it didn't make a big impact for me. It really just comes down to your driving conditions.

I used to be in this boat of trying to figure out the largest size I could go without modifications after the lift. I ended up going with 265/70 and just making the modifications. I'm so glad I did. Way more tire choices, and modifying it really wasn't hard at all. If you find that the tire you go with is slightly too large, its very easy to modify.
