What will happen when change my current 265/70/R16 with 265/75/R16, can I do it without do any damage to my vehicle?

In what way are you worried about damaging Cassie? Running bigger tyres means more stress on driveline and steering components. I beleive a 2" lift is nessasary to fit them without scrubbing aswell. But in saying that the drive train and steering on a 90 can comfotably run 265/75s, its a very popular size on them.

Mate you will be fine, Kyle has just fitted 285/75/16 on stock suspension. A bigger tyre suits the cruiser better IMO as a tourer as it makes 5 th gear a bit taller
