Most places can handle 17 inch wheels, but larger than that, you have to make sure that the company or persons that are mounting your wheels have the proper equipment to do that, for instance, my 22 inch wheels, the Ford dealership could not do those, and clearly stated that they could not, so I went to the Mounting shop that I bought the wheels from to have them put the new sensor on the wheels.

You will probably have to reverse your quad shocks so that they won't rub.

They help stabilize your rear axle. They are almost horizontal, you should be able to see them in the fender opening.

Should be able to do on stands. If you don't reverse them I'm pretty sure they will rub if you go with a very wide tire.

I have 275/40/R17 in the rear and I have just enough room. So you will have to flip your quad shock or remove if spacer isn't big enough.

It is the shock looking thing that is running horizontal.

The quad shock is in the upper left hand corner. There is not much room between this and my tire. Seeing how your running a 315 it will depend on your spacer and the flipping of the shock. I know people run 315's on the rear just don't know all the details. 315's will be my next tires for the rears.

Upgraded upper and lower arms and torque box reinforcements will allow you to eliminate quads.... Pan hard bar isnt a bad idea either, all 3 on my "pretty please honey" list lol wives just dont understand!

What brand tires did you get? Not sure if I want to spend $300 or $450 on a new set of rear tires.

Nitto's are great tires especially the 555's. They hook up! But my exp is they don't last, bur they are great while they do
