Off road / mud tires on 17" OEM rim?

Searched forum and couldn't find any previous threads.

I have a 2004 Xterra with 17" OEM rims

here is a picture:



I want to go with a lift (2.5 to 3") and upgrade my tires, but I really want to keep my rims as they actually look really nice on my ride as is.

Does anyone know any 32"-33" offroad tires that will fit on an OEM 17x8 rim?

has anyone else done this?

Pictures would be great too

After some searching and checking out some member rides: I found that Jackal sports these on the stock S/C rims:

265/70/17 BFG A/T's


any other recommended 32-33" tires?

a 285/70/17 will be a ~33x11.5 tire. I like the stock 17's too, but be prepared to spend way more for tires on 17's.

those look pretty good.

also, really digging your roof lights, is that a custom setup or a kit?

Also, did you have to put wheel spacers in?

Wheel spacers INCREASE TIRE RUB on IFS set-ups.

They do help with the rear live axle though.

You only NEED them if you increase your REAR wheel travel enough, and have at LEAST 12.5" wide tires....and then, ONLY in the rear.




305/65/17 would be as close as you'd get to to a 33x12.5/17 equivalent tire size.

285/70/17 would be like a 33x11.5/17.

I have a 3 in suspension lift and I run 265/70s and they work fine. I ran them at stock height with a little bit of rubbing, but no major issues. Also, it looks like a 255/75 will fit which would be the Rubicon tread BFG KM1.
