I think you should sell them to me or possibly trade me! Just saying LOL, stock truck maybe 285/70/17 but will look wierd on a 12 wide wheel, so even better reason to sell them to me!

You are going to be very limited on what tires you can run without a lift. Those new wheels are almost to wide.

Re: need help

Are they stamped 17x12 or did you measure them yourself? Remember, when measuring wheel width, its from INNER lip to INNER lip.

If they are 12s, look for a 13"-15" wide tire. A 315 would fit, but they would look like the sidewalls were bulging out.

Regardless, you're going to need a lift to clear them.

I found a tire he could run without a lift. Sure they are made for passanger vehicles and have 1700lb load rating, but they will clear...

P315/35ZR17 They are 25" tall and approved for a 12" wide wheel.

Can you tell I am bored at work?

Hells yeah! Those tires would have the effect of 31.5s with a 4.69 gear! Woo hoo! Let's go to the track!

Slow night here, too.

That would be a torque beast. I work night shift in a machine shop. Making Boeing 737 and Gulfstream G650 parts right now. What do you do?
