I love those tires but I'll be honest, there wore like s**t on my truck. They've changed the rubber compound a lot and are now a lot softer. I don't know if they make them in the size you're wanting but i highly suggest looking at the Cooper Discoverer AT3. Excellent tire and going up to the size you're wanting will fit no problem.

Not at all. I just put a set on my 05 Envoy and I'll have to say they're the best tires I've ever had. I had a set put on my Uncles Z71, 265/75/16 and he loves them. Quiet, smooth ride and handle great. I have Bridgestone Dueler's on my truck. Only have 10k miles on them but if i could afford to I would put the Coopers on mine and sell the Bridgestones.
