Thanks for the replies guys, I haven't made a choice yet but I appreciate the input!
I tried some 17" rims & tires from my brother's 2004 (?) Dodge. They were 35x12.5s.
They looked good, but just barely fit. I had to space the bumper forward about 3/4". They also rubbed the against the springs when turning sharply. They were a lot quieter than I expected on the highway.
Are those a stock wheel? If not, then they probably fit better than Dodge ones.
Here's my dodge with 3rdgen dodge steelies. 295/70R17. Axle widths increased 4" on the front and 5" on the rear... in order to fit them nicely.
u2slow, they are probably not, the center caps said EAGLE on them. As you can see I had a b!tch of a time getting a couple of them off.
Those tuck in a more than the ones I have on my truck. I have 16x10 bart wheels with 315/75/16 tires, dont remember back spacing but where last on a k5.
I also trimed that little ear off the bummper
