Nitto offers the grapplers in a 33x11.50x16 I think that would look better than the 17's idk tho.

I like the wheels you have on there now, but then again...

16x9. Fills the tires out so much better now.

idk whether to go with 16's or 17's. I dont want it to have a too much wheel look or look weird. Im kinda thinking 16's is a better bet.

Calling all members with moto metal 951's...... I would love to see some pics...... and mud grapplers if people have those also just to get an idea of how they look on rangers.

I like the look of more wheel less rubber especially when they are black rims,, chrome not so much... I am putting 265's on a pair of 17 when i get my new wheels and it's gonna be badass.

315s would roughly be a 35" and I think a 35" would look good on 17's.

I had 285's on my old 17's, still looked pretty good. I love the bigger wheel/mud terrain look

also right now i have 3 & 3/4 backspacing.... how much more sucked in will the tires be with the moto metals 4.56 backspacing... plus im going from a 10" wide wheel to a 9" wide wheel and from a 12.50 to a 11.50 It isnt going to be sucked into the fenders alot more than what i have now is it

If they made 17's with less backspacing I would say get them. But I just vote for different 15's with a different tire.
