AFS 17x10.5 wheels are delivered, next tires...

Received my AFS Mach 17x10.5 wheels. Gotta wait a month or so for tires. Going to run Nitto Motivo 315/35x17 tires. Anyone else running those? Any issues on a stock suspension? Talked to a few body shops about rolling the fenders just in case, so far no one knows what that means and look like a deer in the headlights when I ask.

I've had that setup before on an Eibach Pro-kit, you'll be fine.

I've got 17x10.5's with 315/35/17 Mickey Thompson Street Comps and Eibach Sportlines and have not had any issues with the tires touching the rear fender. I've got the stock ISO's with my springs.

Stay away from steep changes in grade (steep driveways etc) and your chances of cutting a sidewall will go down. I've cut one before on my old '02 Roush 360R while parking in grass at a car show. All it took was a little unseen sunken area and there went a $300+ eagle f1 gsd3 tire. That car was on eibach pro kit if I remember correctly and running 17x10.5. (Really wasn't that low)
