    Wheels and Tires
    Anyone have experience with these wheels. I have a set of 4 DR 31 5X114.3 17X8 +35 for $450. Will these fit comfortably within my wheel well. I have thinking of going with 17X9, but heard there might be a chance they tires could rub while I was turning. I am going for something low maintenance.
