    Looking at a 17x8" rim http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/Whee...lse&filterNew=All&filterWeight=All&sort=Brand wondering what the widest tire I can run on this? Im not good with tires but my buddy had a 8" wide rim and ran 13" wide on his jeep tj.. But ive heard with this rim and 33"s witha 3" lift you have to chop the cab mount. Are these worth the hassle?

    Plan on running good year wrangler MT/R kevlar 305-70-r17

    But I feel this rim and tire is gunna be too "pretty" to offroad, my second option is some steelies 16"s and 285-75-r16 wich also is alot cheaper.

    My only issue is I dont wanna go through 4 sets of rims like my dakota, I wanna get the rims that will be good offroad "wide" and look good dirty "steelies with beadlock"

    any opinions would be appreciated, thanks guys!

    From what I've found in a quick google search, the BBS RD Truck's have 4.75" backspacing. With a 285 you would definately have some rubbing and need to trim plastic and chop the cab mount (even the guys with 4.5" backspacing, a 3" lift, and 285's have to do this).

    The 4.75" BS would be certainly be too much to run a 305 on.

    I appreciate the imput, and I am the same guy who wanted to get the drop bracket lift if you dont remember but opted for a 3" ome or the billstien lift from toyteclifts.com with add-a-leafs and springs to get the total 3".

    Good choice.

    As far as the rims go, they sit 0.25" closer inwards than what most people run with 285's (and have to trim). Tough to say exactly how much more you will have to cut with the additional backspacing.
