17’s are ok with a certain tire, I’m running the Toyo mt with a 4300 pound rating. I think it’s also worth mentioning that 17 inch wheels on a 13+ 3500 or 14+ 2500 can and will cause the wheel weights to hit the calipers if your not careful. I run balance beads with these raceline wheels.
Haha.
"A" certain tire. One tire. It's a shame that nobody else makes any 37" 17s with decent load ratings.

Yes your right, the only decent one is one I really don’t need, a 37x13.50 Toyo mt, these tires are very very wide and allot taller than their 12.50 counterpart, but if you run 17’s and need a heavy duty tire, these are it.

17s for sure. Way bigger tire selection and on an average, 17s cost less than 18s.
Plus the 17 you have mounted looks perfect !!

I saw this the other day,FWIW.
Yup I have those on my truck, work great, however they are not made to have clamp on wheels weights on the backside of the rim, you have to use stick on and pray they don’t hit your caliper like mine did, I am now using 4 oz of balance beads.69E27B99-83A0-4AF2-AFEF-96168BEC009C.jpeg
