Awesome look Charlie. I've been looking around at tire/wheel combo's for my 06 GC Overland and have narrowed it down to 2 wheels and 2 tire companies. One of the combo's is the procomp 7031 and the Destinations although I haven't decided between A/Ts and M/Ts. I need to way the increase in road noise and handling VS their off road abilities. Anyway, on to my question...

The narrowest those wheels come is a 17X9. The Destinations fit 7.5-9 wide rims. I was wondering with your set up, how much risk are those wheels at of being damaged because the wheel might not stick out far enough to protect them? The other tire I'm interested in is the Nitto Grapplers which I noticed are slightly wider and might provide more protection. I'd love your opinion and anyone elses opinion that run Destinations or Grapplers on 17X9 Wheels. Thanks
