I made a post recently on a certain set of wheels and ended up opting out. After research and measuring. I think I’m going to go with some American Racing wheels that are 17x8 and buy some 245/70/17’s to match, I know 245 is pushing it for that wheel width. But wanted opinions on if that would rub or not in the top of the fender, the wheels have a 0 offset.

Gotta know more about the truck, is it stock height? Lowered?

So stock size would've been in the 235/75/15 range, which is about 30" tall. That 245/70/17 is about 31" tall. I'd say you'd probably be fine. As far as the zero offset though, I'm not sure on a stock truck
