New Wheels Questions

I just bought new 2005 Ford factory wheels for my 99. They are 17" x 7.5". I have been told that i will need to get 1" spacers for the front. Any recomendations on name brands of spacers? Also what is the biggest size tires I could get mounted on these wheels?

Why did you buy 17's?Especially by 7.5?These are the hardest rim sizes to get anything you may want to fit.
Research and you'll find that these rim sizes are like a basterd size-go to all tire sites-they will show you what's available and you won't be happy with what you see.
Sorry about the bad news-unless you're looking for a straight-tread kind of tire

The reason I bought these wheels is that they are practically new and I only paid $150 for all 4.
