Wanna put on some cool treads?

Hey all

Time to switch up my wheels. Going for something different, specifically steel truck wheels, the 8 hole type. Black Rock has postive offset spec'd wheels that I'm 90% sure will fit based on my math between the new wheels and factory specs. I also found a nifty little website that does conversions for you as well that echoed my findings.

Going to 17x8 with a +25 offset (factory 17x7 +43 offset). Keeping the same tires I have now, 225/55r17.

Am I looking to rub much going this route?

Thanks for that link. I played around on another one much like that and came up with this

I have been debating dropping down to a set of 17 inch wheels lately.

It is a reasonable size. I'm sticking to 17s because I don't want to buy new tires (mine are still quite new).

In general people have had ok luck with 8'' wheels on LHs with the correct size tires.

I have 20x9 Magnum SRT8 wheels on my Intrepid and 20x8 300S wheels on my Special with upsized tires and they rub.

With the stock sized tires and just an 8'' wheel, I'd be willing to bet you won't have any issues - I'd just check carefully to make sure you can run a 225/55/17 on an 8'' wide rim (I don't have any idea).

Finally, after being on back order, four of these bad rabbits showed up! It's just a sneak peak as I am still laid up recovering from a surgery, but they're here!
