265/70 on a 2" Budget Boost

I recently installed a Rough Country 2" Budget Boost on my 2001 4.0 4x4 WJ Laredo. I am looking for tires, and I noticed that Rough Country recommends a 30/9.5 (245/75) tire but I would prefer to install a 30/10.5 (265/70) tire. Will the 265's fit without rubbing on suspension components? I am willing to do minor trimming to the front bumper guard if needed. I have done a lot of research and have found mixed opinions. Some say that the 265/75's will fit stock (I think that's a load of BS), some say that 265/75's will fit a Budget Boost with minor trimming to the bumper cover (which I also think is a load of BS). Others say that a 265/70 will rub the shocks and control arms at full lock, where as some say that all you need to do is trim some of the bumper cover. And then some say that only the 245/75's will fit. I am going to be running the stock 16x7 rims with stock backspacing (I believe it is 6") and my stock tires were the 245/70 option. I was wandering if there was anyone out there with a Laredo in the same year who has done this, or someone knows of a thread about this and could link it to me. As I said I would prefer the 265/70's, and I am willing to do some minor bumper cover trimming but I don't want it rubbing on the shocks or control arms.
