After extensive searching here...I've not found a diffinitive answer to my question. So I'm needing a bit of info and advise.
First off....we are talking a Sport model which comes w/ 17" alloy rims.
After a 3" lift, I want to go with Konig Countersteer Offroad rims-black (see STR8 BEAST's build thread). But I'm almost certain they only come in 16".
I was checking out the BF Goodrich All terrains yesterday at SAM's Club and side by side compared 285/75/16 and 285/70/17. I like the look of the 16s better (bigger tire on smaller rim). I'd think there are advantages to having more rubber between the rim and the ground too.
So...I badly want to swap out the original 17" alloys for the 16" Konigs on my sport.
1) Can you put the 16" rim on the Sport model (any clearance issue)?
2) And...is there good reasons I should stay with 17" rims?
Thanks for your help!
