Are you changing your rims also? I noticed that they're not offered in 17's.

they do offer my size.

265/70/17

i prefer to run a wider tire on a narrower wheel. it keeps the tire on the rim when you air down.

i ran 33x12.5x15's on a 15x8" wheel. it worked really good. you could air down to 8 psi without blowing the bead.

Okay, I see now. They didn't have that size on the other page. I think it looks awesome.

Thanks for the link. They offer free shipping. I was going to get them from tire rack, but they charge for shipping. I will be buying my tires from this site in a couple of weeks. 255/70/17 Wrangler Silent Armor.
