No difference really... just the tire sidewalls will be at a less vertical angle between the tread and the wheel. The tires may appear wider, but your contact patch with the road will be virtually the same.

You won't rub if you get the right offset. I have 9" with 265's, 40mm offset. I had to roll my fenders to avoid rubbing. If I got 9.5", I'd go for 46mm offset to be safe.

so is it correct that 265 on 9" ET46 will be the setup that requires the least fender work??
