So are you suggesting go down to 255 on a 10" rim in order to get a little more stretch or maybe a 10.5" rim with the 265 tire?
Widening your wheel 1/2" with a 265 will definitely give you more of a wheel poke. If you want a bit more stretch on a x10 wheel, go with a 255 or 245 depending on how close you want it to sit to your fender. More stretch means a narrower tire on the rim so it doesn't come into contact with your fender. Generally, you wouldn't want to stretch more then you have to if you have enough tire/fender clearance. So from my understanding, a 255 will work perfectly fine for what you're looking for. It'll give you enough clearance to add a spacer for that flush fitment. I hope I helped out
