That may be true with factory wheels, but with my AEV Pintlers, and zero suspension upgrades, I'm using 265/70/17 with no rubbing issues whatsoever. The same size could probably be used if you had spacers as well. Or 265/65/17 depending on the tread.

What exactly is a Aev pintler

Its the rims he has. I have 255/70/17's on my 05 4.7 with no mods. If I cut the bolt, did the pinch weld and got some small spacers I could fit 265/75/17's no problem. Those mods are mostly labor, you can cut the bolt and do the pinch weld yourself, and spacers are less the 350 for the set.

We did a test fit of 255/75/17 and with the bolt trim and a 1/4" spacer we should be good!

This is the 2010 18X8 OEM RIM ... is this possible to be put on the 2005 3.7 ?? I mean has anyone done this and if so, what size tire did you utilize?

Newb question: what is the advantage of bigger tires?

Do they make you waste more gasoline?

I have a 2006 with stock 235/65/17 tires and looking to buy new tires.

I'm sure it would. Stock size tires for that rim size is 245/60/18 I believe. At least that's what was on mine before I switched out the wheels.
