Then using a long ruler or a straight flat piece of material, determine how many inches your wheel is spaced from the back lip of the rim to the center. This will give you a good idea of how far your new aftermarket wheels may stick out and also guide you when determining a new tire size. A lot of the time the more you can keep the tire inside of the fenderwell the bigger the tire you can fit onto the vehicle.Even though you're not changing the track width by replacing the knuckle, it's still a goo We know choosing the right tire can be a real pain and inevitably when there is something gained, there is something lost. We had to really think about what was the right tire for our Dodge. We knew that we'd be towing and of course we'd be throwing this thing in the dirt, but what about our commute? A 60-mile roundtrip is pretty much the norm for us here at the 'zine and California roads aren't the best in the world. After much deliberation we decided on Goodyear's new Wrangler with Silent Armor technology in the 285/70/17 variety. The tread design offers an aggressive enough pattern to get through the trail, but gives a smoother ride with almost zero road noise.We know choosing the right tire can be a real pain and inevitably when there is something For wheels we went with 17x8 7005 Cast-Blast Pro Comp Xtreme Alloys with 4.5 inches of backspacing.
