Im not too concerned about the width, but I just hate skinny low profile sidewalls. Would something like 225/75/17 fit? Ive seen people with 18 inch wheels but with skinny profile tires. Also would I need to modify the wheel well? would I need spacers?
Have you put the sizes into a tire size calculator? You can compare your tyres to the factory sizes to know how much bigger they will be. I have 215 60 17 and they are pretty close to 215 70 16 stock tyre.
I have a 99' and installed these tires with the oem lift kit and had bad rubbing issues; with the lift I wouldn't go over a 28" at the most 29" tall tire.
- 5 ea - *Tires - 235/75R16 Firestone Destination A/T (tirerack.com)(these tires are 30" tall and caused some rubbing issues that I had to repair with the judicious use of an implement of destruction (4lb hammer) to the raised areas at the rear of the front fender wells.
