    So will i have rubbing issue if i swap my tires from the sport rims which are 17x7 with konig countersteer type x that are 17x8. No lift, and the tires are bfg all-terrain 265/70. I hear that they will rub because konig are wider than the stock sport rims. Also, i still have my stock bridgestone dueler tires 265/65, will those mount on the konig 17x8?

    wat?
    what is the backspacing on the rims you are looking to get? if the 265/70 will mount, the 265/65 will since they are the same width

    I put 265/70's on mine with 17 X 8.5 wheels and didn't have any problems. Later added a leveling kit but not because of any rubbing issues. Can turn the wheels all the way without any problem.

    Countersteer X are 17x8 with -10mm offset. I have these wheels, 265/70/17 BFGs, Bilstein5100s at 1.75", mudflaps removed and they rub slightly from time-to time. The BFG's square shoulder and the negative wheel offset put the outside shoulder of the tire really close to rubbing on the back portion of the front fenders when turning (especially turning and hitting a bump). If you go with that setup Id recommend 1.75-2.5" lift. Good luck. . .
