Too wide if stock height plus too wide for tires you have more than likely.
If lifted then you could run a 255-70-16 or 265-70-16 if wheels are 5 inch backspaced

I have the OME lift @ 2.5” at the moment but going to 4” with JBA Adjust-A-Struts and rear coils. Right now running Duratrac 245-75-16 on factory rims.
Backspace?

You measure backspacing from the lip, where the bead of the tire would sit so looks maybe like 4.5, not great, may have to run more bumpstop in the rear.
If going to 4 inch you already know what all else you will need? Few more things to make the suspension work properly at 4 than 2.5 .
If you need to know just ask can fill you in, plus a regear if going larger tires

Looks like those rims are not worth to try, better to buy a new set with the 5” backspacing. Perhaps 17 x 7 and get new tires.

About the lift thanks for offering help, I spoke with Marlin at JBA and he provided me with the parts I need to go 4”. You think I’m missing something?

Thanks

Yes good you got the extended sway bar and trac bar for the rear

No gears for larger tires but maybe you are waiting but you will need them

Best to find some 7 inch wide with 4 inches of backs spacing

With 32s I would really go 4.56s, 4.10s would be minimum
I have ran 32s for 1000's of miles and 4.10s , and always wished gears were lower

Done quite a number of them with 4.10s and 32s and everyone wanted just a bit more. Doable but in cases where you live in hills or pull a trailer, 4.56s would be perfect.
I run 265-70-16s ( basically 31s) with 4.10s , not that's almost perfection
