If you go too big it looks like your 4x4ing even worse though. why dont you wanna lower it?

Yea i know.
i love how everyone calls em 4x4s, but its true
and i dont want to lower it cus of all the mateinence stuff that comes with lowering
do you think 235/45/17 is too thick?

going to a 235 is a bit much. if you go too wide its a pain to steer. plus, unless you have major traction issues theres not really any benefit to going that wide

the only benifit of going that wide to me is that i think a wider tire looks cool
but thats just me, i dont really car about the traction issue
I have seen people running a 225/45/17 and their gap is huge, idk
