Thanks. Yeah I am looking for an aggressive type look, something that may stick out slightly past the fenders. I wasent sure if a standard 285/70/17 would fit ok on the 17x9?There are a ton of sizes to choose from.. it seems the 295/70/17 has been the popular size recently.. in a nitto tire.

It all depends on the offset of your wheels. You can fit up to 33"x12.5" r17 on stock 17" wheels with zero rubbing and no modification required, so 295/70/17 should be no problem. But if your rims have a negative offset, that's when you will get rubbing and need the PW mod. If your wheels have a more positive offset similar to stock, you won't need a leveling kit or pw mod for anything up to 33" x 12.50" tires. Mine never rub even when I bottom out the shocks with the wheels at full cut. 33x12.50r17 fits like they were meant for the truck on the stock offroad wheels.
What is the offset of the stock wheels?Like I said, it all depends on the offset of your wheels. If they have a negative offset then you might have to do the pwm. If the offset of the wheels is close to that of the stock wheels, then you will be good. So find out what the offset is on the wheels and then you can have a better idea if the pwm will be required.
