16x9 or 17x8 wheel/ tire combo decision time.
OKay, so here it is. I have come to this decision.
315/75R16 DuraTracs on ATX Ledge wheels which are 16x8, or........
315/70R17 DuraTracs on ATX Artillery wheel which is a 17x9 wheel.
I like the Ledge as far as cosmetics better than the Artillery. But I am pretty sure the 315/70R17 will not fit safely on the 17x8 size wheel. (They do not make the "Ledge" in a 17x9, only 17x8), So if I have to go with the 16x9 to get the "look" I like a lot better, and if the smaller tire is a bit less, should I go that route? Can anyone confirm this? Also, if I order this package from say TireRack or 4wheelparts, do they know the backspacing is okay with an AEV 2.5 inch lift? Or do I need to be worried about that on my own as well? I am getting ready to order something and just dont want to F it up before getting your input! Thanks a million.
I have a Dark Charcoal 2010 Rubicon, so the Teflon looks really nice with my paint. Hence the wheel decision. But if you guys know of another tire to run on a 17x8, I will gladly look into them instead of focusing just on the DuraTrac.
