    Hey guys, im asking for some opinions on what tire and wheel size to get... I am getting 2.5 fox coils in front and uca. Im going for the pre runner look so i want the wheels to sit in the wheel wells rather than the car sitting above the wheels. I am getting kmc 17" enduros because i hear there ar some problems with the 16s, so my first ? is, should i go 17x8 or 17x9? the tires Im looking at are the bfg a/t. my second ? is, should i get 265/70/17 or 285/70/17...thanks for the help

    What do you mean you want the wheels to sit in the wheel wells? They already do. Why would there be problems with 16's as opposed to 17's in the Enduros? A lot of people on here running both 16 and 17 with out probs. What did you hear?

    6 on 5.5 with 4.5 backspace and your good! Offset everyone is running a different offset depending on their wheels.

    I think those that i've seen who are running 17x8 are using 265 and 17x9 are using 285.

    You'd be good with either size, but with 285's you WILL have to trim your front fenders as well as the wheel wells inner plastics. Refer to this to get a reference of what and where to trim. CLICK ME
