Sure you can. It just depends on what size tires you plan on getting.

I think if you wanted you could put 20's on it with rubber band tires.You do know that 245/65r17's wont fit an 18 inch wheel right? Make sure you get the correct offset/backspacing on your wheels, if you ever decided to run a larger tire you could rub based on offset/backspacing Oh, and welcome to the forum

Ummmm, you can't install a 245mm wide tire on a wheel that is 9 inches wide. For you to run a 17x9 your going to need a wider tire, and the only problem with that is the wider the tire gets the taller it gets too. For the proper size tire to fit on a 17x9 I wouldnt personally run anything less then a 285/70 and to run that size wheel youd need a 4 inch lift. You could run a 275/70 but you still wounldnt be able to fit it unless you had a lift.

Read the post above your last post. That gives you the info you need to run a 17x9 wheel on the commander.

That last number in the tire size is the rim size. So xxx/xxR17 is a 17" rim. xxx/xxR18 is a 18"rim and so on.
