want 17 in wheels, i saw m/t,,,

i saw some m/t mickey's , on a jeep size 17 in tires and they looked sweet , now i want them on my truck,. ive got a 4x4 edge 2001 4.0

but as i saw them , they were 190.00 a piece and only had 18'',,

so now im asking all the wise men here,.

what can i go with and if 17 are good , dont want my 16 stock i have now and 15 never liked them,..

so what do the wise men here advice?


new to this, and got to fix up my bucket of a truck. and not a lot of pesos to do so,.

happy end of 2006 to all of you. and may 2007 be only better health and money wise.

my friend has Wrangler MTRs on his Grand Cherokee that has a 17" wheel that looks damn good... maybe try and find some of those rims from a Grand in a junkyard or something and then get some MTRs or whatever fits.... oh his tires are 265/70/17 I believe

Oh, yeah, btw... Ford made a really nice-looking aluminum rim for the Explorers in a 17x7in size, I'll see what I can find on eBay...

I believe SummitRacing.com will carry the 17x9 MT Classic 2s and Classic Locks. If you can't find them on the site, call them up and ask someone, it'll only take a few minutes and Everyone on this site will recommend Summit Racing as the place to purchase wheels/tires.
