    Just curious on what the general consensus is around here. I searched for photos but everyone seems to have new tires with more aggressive tread.
    Does it look silly to have the stock 265/65/17 tires (in my case they are Bridgestone Dueler H/T 684) with aftermarket wheels? I'm looking at the Moto Metal 951B.

    I dont care for the stock wheel look, but if it will look dumb without better tires, then I might consider waiting.

    Thoughts?

    It will look fine as long as you don't go with a real wide wheel that causes the tire to bulge out too much.

    What would be considered a real wide wheel? The moto metals only come in 17x9 for a 17" wheel.

    Well, I ran 265/70/17's on my 17x9's and it looked fine. Im actually running 255/75's on my wheels now. The tires are a little too narrow for the wheels but the profile of the MT tire makes it look fine. here is a pic of my 265's on 17x9's:

    I've got he 951's on my stock 245/75/16's. It doesn't look silly, but it would look better with a more aggressive tire.
