Did you compromise any turning radius to have tires that size? I bought 17" rims for my 2011 to replace the 18" rims it came with. I'm looking for a beefy tire to match them with. I've seen the Nitto G's and I really like the aggressive look.

Turning radius wasn't compromised at all. After doing a lot of research I went with the biggest tire I could fit without a lift or leveling kit. Love the look of the Nitto Trail Grapplers. 265/70R17 fit perfectly and give that aggressive look, esp with the Rockstars. Offset is perfect too. Stick out just enough for that stance I wanted without having to worry come time for inspection or anything getting kicked up and damaging the side of my car. I'll post more pics today as my truck has changed a bit since this post. Friends call it 'Optimus', looks like a Transformer.

Since you bring it up, what is your offset? I have a set of 17" Raceline Raptors. They have a 0.00 offset. Haven't put them on yet. Still waiting for the right set of tires to match them up with.

Mine are 17" Rockstar XD series -12mm offset, 5.88" backspacing. That backspacing is recommended for the 2013 wk2's. My tires measure 32" and don't rub at all. I like those Raptors that'll look sick. Black or machined?

Machined. I've been drooling over them since they arrived like a little kid who found where the Christmas presents were hidden.
