There are 3 main points to look at when plus sizing a tire:
1) the % difference between the 2 sizes
- this can never exceed 4%, due to speed sensors, anti lock brakes, etc.
2) the Overall Diameter difference
- which in this example is + 1.0 inch
3) the Sidewall Height difference
- which is 0.5 of an inch in this situation
Therefore, with your specific situation,
1) the % difference is less than 4%
2) the diameter is excessive at + 1 inch, but
- this is for a truck which typically allows for greater tolerances
- you have installed a lift kit
3) the sidewall height difference is + 1/2 an inch
- again, being a truck and with the installation of a lift kit, you should be okay
In the end however, we recommend that you work with your local Canadian Tire auto service department to make a definitive call whether the tires will fit your truck.

I own a 2007 Tacoma with a 3" lift and 265/75/16 BFG A/T's, I personally have not experienced any rubbing on the UCA as of yet. My brother also owns a new gen Tacoma with these exact tires mounted on stock rims and he has not encountered any issues either.
Sure should fit considering the section width is the same size. You'll be getting another 1/2" of lift. Check out this post. In particular, post #10 response dealing with the exact question you're asking.
With your lift, you could even go bigger.
