    I am thinking of ordering a set of 17x9 moto metal 955s (4.5" backspacing and -12 offset) and would like to pair them with 265/70/17 nitto terra grapplers.

    Is anyone running this set up and if so.... please post some pics. Doesn't have to be the 955s. I'm just trying to get an idea as to how the 17x9s will work with the 265/70/17s.

    thanks!!!

    I think a 9" wheel is too wide for a 265, it's gonna kinda strech the tire. I would go between a 7.5-8.5" wheel with a 265. I would lean towards a 285 the wider the wheel you go with (i.e. 8.5 or larger)

    That's a concern I have. Pics would help me decide. I really like the 955s but they only come in a 17x9. 285s will not work with my current setup.

    thanks
