275 on 10.5 rims?

well my 285/60's wore down, now im lookin for some new tires, but im running 275/60 17's in the front on 17x9" wheels and 285/60/17 on 17x10.5 wheels, 1/4" spacer in the front 3/8" spacer in the back,

i love having the 10+ wide tires, handling is amazing, do you think it would look goofy with 275/50/17s all around since i gotta wider wheels in the back?

can most tire shops stretch tires?

Is there anyway you can post some more pics...? how far do they stick out from the wheel well? I was thinking about lowering mine an thats exactly how i want mine to look. So its 2/2.5" drop, an howd you do that? if you can PM me id appreciate it.

I have 18x9/10" Silver FR500s on order, your truck pulls them off sooooo incredibly well. Can you post up some side, front and rear pics? I want a low profile but would like to keep my current RPM. Thanks in advance.

i loosened the torsion bolt, and removed the blocks, i also added different bump stops.. I want to flip the keys, and flip the shackles, and add different shocks, if it is alignable and the cv joints dont look to extreme im gonna keep the 4x4

i also have 1/4" front spacers and 3/8" rear spacers, the front rub'd at full lock, and the rear rub'd over bumps, the spacers fitd it, i would say the line right up with the fender.. the rear should be a inch lower for it to sit level, but i like the raked look

lol stretched tire. my friend is going to do that on his GTI. don't go to a like big tire place if you plan to do it they won't. go to a smaller place. and falkens have more "stretchable" sidewalls.
