bfg at mix size

im about to receive some fairly new bfg at tires. but they dont match in size.

one size is 235/85/16 and the other are 265/75/16.

truck thats it is comming off is a 88 f350 on steel rims and its a 2wd


they are going on my 1999 sd f350. i am going to put the 265s in the rear. the question is can i put the 235s on the front or the sd rims are too narrow for that.

the other thought was to put the 265s in the front and put new 265s in the rear.

or

put 285/75/16 in the rear.

i know the 285s are an inch difference in hight, but is that ok for the 4x4 system when using it?

idk what kind of condition the tow other sized tires are in, maybe go down to les schwab bro and ask them if theyd accept those used tires and give you a deal on two other ones of the same kind you need? unless your broke a fudge that is lol
