    I'll save someone else from saying it.... search...

    Checkout down south, wheelers, and toytec.

    You sure you got 70's?

    My 17" came with 65's... I upgraded to 265/70's... With a full 3" you could go with 285's if you have the proper backspacing.. One thing that i also read was it could be dependant on the brand and type of tire if you will need to trim a bit. Check out the wheels forum for those... I remember asking some tire questions there as well...
