    Hey all,
    I have been doing a lot of fourum/internet searching on this and thought I would see what you guys think.

    Right now I have the stock 17" wheels with some BFG Mud Terrains 265/70R17. I really want to get some XD wheels 17x8 or 9, but cant decide one what size.
    I want something that I can run the BFGs on right now, but can throw on something larger like 685/70 or 33/12.5 later on.
    I wish I could just get new wheels and tires, but my wife would shoot me,plus my BFGs only have about 2,500 miles on them.

    BTW, I have a 3" lift.

    Any thoughts?

    Agreed. Go with 9" wides. Everything else is just your decision.
