Yeah, please provide your hub/fender measurement. That number sounds extremely high for a Z85.

The rear fender should sit about 1.25" less when the vehicle is level. If you have equal measurements, your front is way high.

Please specify the amount of lift, and how you lifted your truck -as well as the backspace of the wheels you have purchased in order for us to suggest tire sizes.

Edit.....yes as silver10can commented: tire size is addressed in your other thread. Those are still applicable.
I'm not sure the purpose of this thread now.

265/70-17 with 4.5

The 9" wide wheel is pretty wide, but that's what you got. Hopefully the backspace is between 0 and -10.

back space 4.75
offset 6.6
One of your numbers appears to be a type-o according to the calculators.

4.75" on a 9" wheel is about -7mm.
+7mm (6.6) on a 9" wide wheel is 5.3"

Irregardless, if it is equivalent to 4.75 I think you'll be fine. Good compromise for a Z85.

I'd check with the tires you are considering to see if they suggest a 9" wide wheel. Not too many 265's are suggested for a 9" wide wheel.

Body lift doesn't help much with tire clearance. There is a giant hunk of metal(cab to frame mount) that sits right behind the front tire and gets in the way. 265/70/17 will fit for sure. 285 70R17 may fit but also may rub the cab mount when turning. You can look for some 33x10.5 but I don't think they make that size for a 17" wheel

And the fact that he is tb lifted increases ^^^that possibility correct?

Another option is a 275/70-17, but tire choices are pretty limited in that size.
