    It doesn't look like those are 3.5"+ farther out. They look more like -30 offset, but I could be wrong....?
    Yes they are +30. Test fitted and measured at the shop. Keep in mind that each wheel design may vary how far out they go. So a 30+ for one wheel design may not fit exactly like another with the same offset and width.

    the one thing i will suggest, find a wheel that is under 20 lbs, the tire is definitely heavier so getting a lighter wheel will keep the total weight close to stock, i think that's part of the reason mine isn't such a big hit.






    this is with a +35 offset, i believe you are getting +/- offset mixed up....


    im running a 17x8 +35 offset
    I agree with everything thejeans said. My wheels are 20lbs ea so the end up being 1lb less than my stock 19" wheel/tire combo.

    after this past weekend, im completely sold on the Falken AT3W's, between stream crossings, small mud holes, and driving up steep dirt/gravel roads to covered in 2-3" of fresh snow, driving out of the mountains on paved roads covered in 3-4" of fresh snow. i never felt like the car wasnt going to do what i wanted it to.

    Will these wild peaks fit on a stock OEM 17in wheel? Or do I need completely new wheels. I really want to give these tires a try.

    Did your clearance go up with these tires?

    I have my eyes on a set of wheels that are on clearance that I really like but my only concern is the tire fitment within the wheel well. I am planning on moving to Colorado in February and I'm looking into some all terrain tires. The wheels Im thinking about getting are 17x8 with offset of +45mm while I am thinking of getting a tire size of 245/65-17. Anyone have any reccomendations regarding fit/rubbing, etc?

    You should have zero problems with that setup, other than maybe added weight.
