Should be just fine:

Result:
265/75/16 = 31.6x10.4/16

Just about the size that comes as an option on the X package:

Result:
255/75/17 = 32.1x10/17

I had 285/75 16 on my x when it was new without a lift without any problems.

Great choice for the first mod...I thought those skinny little tires looked outta place too!
I put some BFG 265/75/16 on the stock rims and theyve been good..no rub and pretty good all round traction/grip and not oo much road noise.
