17x7.5 Rim... will 235/80 be too narrow?
I just got my JKS last week, and I feel the need to get decent tires. I also want the Pizza Cutter look. I got the old style rubi wheels (5 spoke), 17X7.5. I was looking at the duratracs and 255/75R17 would be perfect, however they don't come in that size. My two options are:
- 235/80R17: 31.8 inches tall, 9.3 inches wide, the look I'm looking for.
- 245/75/17: A bit wider and a bit shorter, not a big difference I guess but more expensive.
I want to go with the 235's, but I'm concerned about the tire being too narrow for the rim. According to GY, that tire can fit 6 - 7.5" rims, with the ideal being 6.5.
The 245 can fit 6.5 - 7.5 with the ideal being 7.
So 235 shouldn't be a problem, but would like to know from more experienced people.
Thanks a lot!
