17x9 with 5.7 BS????

long time creeper, first post. i recently picked up an 07 commander sport loaded, im wondering about wheels and tires with a daystar lift and level kit. I really like the KMC xhd addict 1 wheels. there are two BS options, 4.5, and 5.7. i want a taller tire but not necessarily a wider tire, just personal preference, i dont like stick out tires and wheels. i have trolled here awhile and not seen anyone running a 5.7 BS wheel. i understand that this wheel will stick out further than the factory wheel and thats ok. what are your opinions on the 5.7 BS wheel and say a 245-75-17, or possibly a 255-75-17

Youll want a wider than stock tire with a 9" wide wheel. I have 255/70r18 (same height as 255/75r17) on an 18x9 with 5.39" backspacing. Your wheels wont stick out quite as far as mine (.31" less) and should align nicely with the factory fender flares.





Stock wheel and tire on front, new wheel and tire on rear:

I'm glad you replied because I've seen your pics of your commander on here I like the way it looks from the front and everything, I'd love to see a side shot of it so I can see how your tire and wheel combination fills up your wiheel well, just ordered the wheels from 4wheelparts, lol. Thanks for the reply

Best side shot I have ATM:


It sits a bit lower in the front on level ground obviously, but this likely gives you a better idea of the look with 2" lift

I did have some rubbing while turning, but I am only on a 1.5" lift. The pinchweld mod fixed that up nicely.

It is not difficult, it may not be necessary for your lift, but if it were me I'd do the pinchweld while I had the front end apart just to be sure.


I did the pinchweld mod with the wheels on and not on jackstands, more room to swing the hammer would've been nice.

Matt posts later in that thread saying using sheetmetal screws to hold back the plastic works better and is easier than using heat(he's done this mod now on several of these). I did mine with sheetmetal screws, and recommend the same.

Another thing: generally the Rough Country lift is recommended over the Daystar lift. I think due to the Daystar lift being made of poly. I have no experience with either personally though.

Those came stock on JK's, I'll bet you can find some slightly used tires CHEAP if so inclined. BFGoodrich M/T's off of a Rubicon are a sweet looking tire...

My wheels and tires came off of a JK and 18's were stock on Safari editions. I spent $600 for 5 matching (my spare matches too!) wheels and tires with Lug nuts and ~75% wear on the tires.



You will likely want a tuner to fix the speedometer.

I have 17x9 +18 wheels, which is 5.71" backspace with 265/70/17 tires. No rubbing what so ever and they are flush with the fender flares. I also have the RR 2.25 lift with a 3/8" spacer. You will be very happy with that wheel, the only advice i would give is to go with a 265 tire, anything less is not recommended on a 9" wide wheel.

2006 XK Sport 4.7L QDII | Rocky Road 2.25" | Rocky Road 3/8" strut spacers | Bilstein shocks and struts | 265/70/17 Falken Wildpeak AT | Raceline Assault 17x9 +18 wheels | iPad mini in dash | Pioneer Digital Media Player | Infinity reference 2 ohm 3.5" | Infinity reference 2 ohm 6.5" | Infinity reference 2 ohm 6x9 | Quadratec floor liners | Flowmaster 40 series 3" tailpipe
