As the title suggests im looking at 35x12.50R17 tires and was wondering if they would work on the stock sport rims. I dont want to have them suddenly popping off on me because the tire is some much wider than the rim itself.

Also i would search but i wouldnt even know where to begin to search for this. If anyone has tires this size mounted on the stock sport rims and can provide some info that would be great.

Ok the only reason I was asking was cause most people that say they do it on the stock 17" rim have either the rubicon type rims and mine are the ugly ass ones like these.

If you are referring to your steelies, then you would have to change your tire size to:

35x12.5x16 or 315/75/16

As the size you mentioned above won't fit...x2 on getting 1.5" wheel spacers to allow you to run those tires on your rims...

Yea i feel like a complete dumbass for not realizing that lol. I had never really looked at it either. :suicide:

Ok well then back to the drawing board on the tires lol. Might actually save some money now with the smaller rim size tho.

Thanks for the input though guys its appreciated.

One last thing though. Why have I heard that you should only go 1.5 inches wider on your tire width than on your rim width. Is that just a factory "recommendation" or what is that about?
