My tires look to skinny, they're 315/70/17 but I'm running stock rims... If I get new rims will the tires stretch and look wider?!?
If you want them to just "look" wider, go with wheel spacers. If you actually want the functionality and looks that come with a properly backspaced wheel, get new rims. 4.5 Backspacing I believe will give you the look with the wider stance you're looking for

I'm talking about the tire itself, I already have spacers but would wider rims actually stretch out the tires ?

I had 285/75-17's on stock rims and then on 8.5" pintlers and they definitely looked wider. I would think 315's would look even fatter if on wider rims as the 7.5" stock rim is pretty narrow.

I have 305/70/17 Terra Grappler. I originally mounted them on a set of Rubicon wheels(17x8) They are now mounted on a set of Pro Comp wheels(17x9) Originally they were 33.25" tall on the Rubicon wheels and are now 33" tall on the Pro Comps. They are a little bit wider now than then. Sorry no pics that show the difference in width.
