Easy S(c)hop, Some Wheels

I am going to have to get some new tires this winter, and thinking I might get some new wheels while I am at it... I like the ballistic jester wheels standing alone, but would like to have an idea of what my colors look with them. Right now I have 285/75/16's and would like to go bigger to like a 315/75/17 or 35x12.5x17, something in that range.

So if I could get the wheels under my truck, and if not to much hassle increase tire size roughly like 7-8 % which would put tires a couple inches bigger

Picture of the truck shows the side view decent, just has glare on the window



And the best straight on side picture has a tire wrapped, so you can just cut the wheel out or even use the whole tire cause I am looking for something a little more aggressive



Trying not to be to picky, just want an idea of what it may look like.

Thanks Guys!

With a leveling kit, you should be able to install 35x12.5x18 tires on whichever wheels you want.
The closer the offset is to stock, the less rubbing you get.
I have a bigger offset (which makes my tires stick out a couple inches and BARELY get some rubbing on my plastic pcs... which all can be pulled back with zipties.

This would not be true, for his truck. His truck has a leaf spring front suspension, so more offset (high negative number) is better. With a '99-'04, 4.5" backspace is what you want. This equates to about -12mm offset on a 9" wide wheel, -24mm offset in a 10" wide wheel, etc. Backspace and offset are directly related.

Also, 35's on a leaf spring front suspension is a crap shoot. Some rub terribly, some don't. IMO, they are most likely going to rub.

I have a friend with an 03 (leaf springs) and he installed 35x12.5x17 Toyo M/T tires on his truck along with a leveling kit and had no issues... But it looks GREAT!

Exactly. Some rub, some don't. It's a crapshoot. Mine rubbed with 33's until I pulled back the plastic.

But you can make it work, right?
I would stuff some 35s in there

Well the fella who owns my old '03 has 35's on it now. But I don't have a clue if it rubs or not. But if it barely didn't rub on 33's, I had a pretty good feeling it would rub on 35's.

My truck has a big level kit and 33s and the mudflaps had to be trimmed so they didn't rub. I should just take those dam things off

Thanks your talking about tire size, I do like the look of large tires without huge lift (kind of a stuffed look) as you can see by my old explorer.

But I am mainly trying to see what those wheels would look like on my truck, hopefully someone can help.
