Tires to fit stock-ish Commander?
My suspension and everything is stock as far as I know. I don't have stock rims though, I'm running 17x8 Ultra Maverick rims with +10 offset. I can't recall what the stock offset/backspacing is, but with my current rims the backspacing is 4.9". I believe the stock backspacing is either 5.7" or 6", which makes my rims act as either .8" or 1.1" spacers (can someone confirm?) With this in mind, what size tires can I fit on there without having any rubbing? I'd prefer to gain some right height (so bigger radius versus larger width).
I can't imagine I can go much bigger without doing the pinch weld mod. I tried using a hair dryer to heat up the wheel well and "remold" it a bit to allow for more space, but it didn't do much. I think I need a better heat source.
