Default New M/T wheels & tires for my '05

Well it took over 3 weeks on order but I got my ne Mickey's. 17" x 9" Classic locks and 305/65R17 Baja ATZ's. Stock height (still considering level kit). They're replacing my 20" chrome clads, one of which had cosmetic damage from some wingnut (not me) torching off a lugnut. The final push to get these is one tire threw a bead (luckily it was on the damaged rim) so I can now sell my old rim's to recoup the cost (or next mod).

There is some minimal additional road noise but one more notch on the radio volume handles that. They ride nice but I cannot compare to the original ride because of the damaged tire. With the offset of the wheel and the 1" wider rim they poke out from the fender well about an 1.5". Time will tell if any police take exception to that, I think I'm only allowed 1/4". I personaly like the beefier look going from 20" to 17" and I'd requested that the new tires keep my stock 33" height. All told they cost $510/corner which what I'm told is about the price of a stock 20" tire.

I suppose you'd rather look at pictures than read this post so here you go;.

If I do get hassled I'll get some Bushwhackers. These have already narrowed the driveway a lot (the wife and I park side by each). Flares will add another 2"and I can't widen the driveway any more without being on the neighbours property!
