I'm now planning to install Bridgestone Dueler 265/75 R15 in my Scorp
While it maynot touch, but it will cause quite a lot of speedo error and suspension issues. The proper upsize will be 265/60/15

Yes Busa, I know about the speedo error. If the speedo shows 100 then actually I would be doing 106 on these tyres.

Can you detail the suspension issues? That's one bit which is nagging me..

Since the tires are way of and heavier then the current setup by quite a margin, they will have more load on the suspension. If you want to upsize to 265, go with 60 profile.
