Welcome to the Titantalk family!

I'll save you some trouble and at least one "well I should have..." moment. Go read the thread on the axle vent issue and solution in the Gen1 FAQ and How to section and do it now. When you replace the seals on the axles you will be all set. Because that little factory vent is garbage. You can use the toyota or nissan part, whichever is cheaper, and some fuel line, zip ties, and a fuel filter without a check valve. Or you can buy the kit from Cajun to avoid sourcing parts. Might save some cash sourcing your own parts, but the trade is time. Whichever you feel is most valuable, save that.

If you just have a weeping seal, you might get lucky and modding the vent will make it stop weeping. Some guys got really lucky like that. A quick search says the parts will run you roughly $23-25, and the kit runs anywhere from possibly as low as $25 on up to $50, depending on where you source it.

For reference, 295/70R17 (the size the OP lists above) are 33.3" tall, and 11.8" wide, roughly. That's only slightly wider (~3/4") than the OEM tires on a Pro4X Gen1 Titan, and within a tenth of an inch in height. That size will fit almost all bone stock Titans (excluding some of the earliest 2wd trucks which had much lower front ends). Shouldn't rub at all.

Happy to help. One more quick hit - not all 17" wheels will fit later Gen1 Titans (the 2008-2015 trucks). Only a select few will fit due to the large brake calipers on the front. Almost all (but not quite all) 18" wheels will fit, but there's a thread around here somewhere about 17s which fit.

Easy thing to do is check them for weeping around the connectors, and any weak spots along the sides. Swap out the connectors for worm clamps. Check them every time you change the oil.

If they go out, you're likely to need a transmission.
