So yesterday I got some new wheels and tires. Ended up put Level 8 zx 17x9 with Falken Rocky Mountain's LT265/70/17. I originally asked the guy at America's Tires for the P-metric version, but he didn't have them in stock and said to try these out for 7 days and if I really didn't like them to come back and they would order and swap them out at no charge. The tires felt great, but heavy. I noticed a decrease in my acceleration off the bat and had some rubbing. Took off the front flaps and have to take off the tiny ones located on the front of the wheel well to have perfect clearance.
Also, I did a bit more research on the wheel and the Falken website states that the LT version of this tires are recommended to be on a 7-8.5in rim and the P-metric version is recommended for a 7-9in rim. I guess my question is what are the effects of going going 0.5in over the recommended tire width?
