OP already has aftermarket rims.

Width shouldn't be a concern if you have proper backspacing on your XD's. In this case it's height that could cause you problems.

jonf30 if you want to go offroad you better get a small lift. up to 2.5". I have the same size tires. The only time I had rubbing was in reverse with the wheel pinned one way or the other. I put a 2.5" Teraflex coil lift w/ the Bilstiens 5100's. No problems after that. If you do go offroad you'll put you tires right up into your fender flares without a lift. Seen it done!Get a small lift if you can.

It'll rub off-road if you flex, or disco your swaybars. A simple TF leveling kit will fix it. Or you could go with a coil lift, coils and shocks, etc.
