It really depends on where the valve stem enters the rim. If it enters like the OEM rims, you should be fine. If it enters through the inside of the face, with a 90* elbow, you will have to strap it to the inside of the rim when you mount the tires.

^^ like mantis said. depends on the location of the stem. At our dealership, some rims pick up, some are don't. if all else fails, black tape works the best :)

ok another issue.... if my stock off-road rims are 7.5 inches wide with 5.5 inch backspacing, and i get a 17X9 inch wheel with 5 inches of backspacing, then my new rims would be 1.5 inches wider, stick out 2 more inches than factory and be a half inch away from the inside on the inside of the rim... hope i said that right, sticking out 2 inches should look good right? kinda like wheel spacers done the right way...

They might rub. I'm not 100% positive. When I got my Mojave's with my 315/70R17's they rubbed bad. They are 17X8 w/ 4.5" BS. The stock tires might work, but I'm no expert.

How bad did they rub? Pinch weld required rub? I'm looking to get new rims, 17x8's, to run my 315's on. I have a slight rub at full turn on the stock off-road rims as is w/ the PRG 4" lift.

All I had was a leveling kit. The 4.5" of BS combined with the larger rim caused the rubbing. The tires did NOT rub before I got the rims. I had them on my OEM OR wheels.

The rubbing was on the rearward portion of the fenderwell and at the "pinch weld".... The pinch weld mod would have not helped in my situation (by itself) If I didn't lift the truck, I would have had to do some body work to get them to fit. The portion of the fender that swoops under the truck needed to be trimmed and re-rolled to clear the tire.
