I wanted to upgrade the tires to All Terrain and also get the Dick Cepek DC2 wheels but those wheels had an off set of -12 and I was told to use these wheels on my truck it would need to be lifted or leveled. I don’t want to do a lift at this time. So I found some wheels at Pep Boys that look very similar to the DC2, they are; Pep Boys 8x17 ProLine MA 1211 that has a zero (0) offset.
My first question (concern) is tires, keeping the 17" stock wheels and up grading the tires only from 265/65 to 265/70 any issues?
Secondly, if I change my stock 17” wheels for the Pep Boys wheels with the zero offset will this cause any problems, future damage, harm in any way?
Finally will the 265/70/17 tires and Pep Boys wheels with 0 offset work 100% on my truck?
Thank you for the additional information.
The 265/70-17 (31.6" tall) tire size is the maximum size you'll want to run with stock suspension but it will work with the factory wheels (17x7.5 EET+30) as well as the 17x8 ET0 wheels you noted. The 17x8 ET0 wheels will sit about 1.5" further out towards the fender when compared to where the factory wheels sit now which means you may have to trim the mud flaps with the 265/70-17 tires.
