I am looking at 17x9 Moto Metal Chrome 955's for my 2006 CC 4x4, I have a
2" leveling kit on the truck now and plan on putting Nitto Terra Grappler 295/70/17 tires on these wheels. My question is will they fit without any rubbing or further modifications? The specs on the wheel are as follows


Size Offset Backside Bolt Pattern Circle
17x9 -12 4.53 6x139.7 (6X5.5)

They may rub, its hard to say because its too close to tell. -12mm offsets are really built for trucks with 4" lift or more. If you want to run the 295/70R17 on your leveled Titan I'd recommend choosing a wheel with a positive offset. Running a positive offset will help keep the tire and wheel in a deeper part of your fenders, minimizing the chance of rub.

If you don't mind modifying your fender liner and possibly the lower edge of your front bumper the wheel and tire combo you are looking at would stick out about 3/4" beyond your fenders.

Due to the negative offset of those rims, you will definitely get some rubbing without doing the PW mod. But like the previous poster said, you can fit those tires all day long on rims with a positive offset similar to that of stock wheels. I run 33x12.50's on stock offroad 17's and get zero rubbing, and I didn't have to do any modifications (I don't have a leveling kit either).

What is the offset of the stock Wheel?

Do you think is putting a 285/70/17 would make a difference with the rub?

I see a Moto Metal 956 in a 17x8 with a 18mm offset would these fit better with the above mentioned 295/70/17 tires without any modifications? Thanks for all your help

Just get the ones you like, run them, and if you need to PWM, then do it... otherwise you'll end up buying something that will "fit" and make you wish you had some other wheels...
Well I was looking at the 951, 955 & 956's so if I can get one of those that will work it would be great.

Yes, a 17x9 with a +18 would be a much better fit for the 295/70R17. If you get any rubbing with this it will be very minimal.
