Default Wheel size help

I am trying to find a cheap set of wheels for winter driving and have found these. http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/Wheel...All&sort=Price Is there any reason why these wont fit on my express?
Thanks in advance!

Well they will fit, but they will stick out about 30mm (1.25") further than the stock wheels. That will put some of the tread just outside the fender(depending on tire width) which I think that you would want to avoid in the winter to keep sand,salt and ice off the side of the truck.

Thanks! I definitely don't want that
I would be getting 265/70 r17, so I am guessing these will stick out. What is the rim size that I need for them to not stick out?

You'd have to get a wheel that is a 7" backspace as factory wheels are 5.75", which won't work because youdbrub all over you suspension of u could even get them on ur truck. Ur best bet would be get some smaller tires or fender flares

If you find a wheel that you like thats 9" wide I would keep the offset in the positive ( 0 to +20mm) (5" - 5.75" backspacing) and if you find a set that are 8" wide I would look for an offset between +6mm and -12mm (4" - 4.75" backspacing) (you can go higher but it would look funny sunken in)
Hope that helps a little.

That will keep you at stock position on the high side and about flush with the fender on the low side. You should still be inside the fender with those tires so you wont have to worry about spraying the side of your truck with sand and salt.
