New wheels & tires.

Ordered these from discount. Love em. 245/70/17 bfg ko2 with the moto metal m0970's. They did rub a bit on the inner metal strip of the fender and a little on the front plastic bumper but nothing a grinder won't take care of. Discount let me grind it down in there shop. Super excited. They ride way better then the stock tires. Speedo is off by 6 mph. Doesn't bother me tho. Btw I'm selling my stock wheels and stock tires if anyone's interested. Not sure about price yet tho. Tires had 38k on them when taken off today. They will also need the tpms sensors since discount reused mine.
I'll try and get better pics when it gets warmer.

Looks great, tight clearance but looks cool. I've got the same van just started working on it but not ready for wheels and tires. Going to get all the free life out of them I can first. Did the tires add any road noise? Will be interested to hear if it increases once you get about 10k on them.

Thanks, yes they'd are a little more noisier but not much. I listen to loud music so that don't bother me. I'll report back in a couple weeks to see what happens with my mpg's. I'm located in chesterfield Michigan. About 30 miles north of Detroit.

Look great! How is the front-inside upper-tire strut clearance with that rim offset/setback?

Thanks, plenty of clearance. I didn't measure but I haven't had any issues so far with rubbing and I do all kinds of driving. Offset is 42 and stock wheels are 60 I believe. I'll try and get an inside pic later this week. Here's one of the pinch weld that I trimmed and one of the front plastic but it's hard to see it.

Those wheels look nice. Did you find them by searching for size or vehicle? I've been looking around at stock-sized options for Transit vans and am surprised there's not a lot out there. I originally assumed I could just swap F150 wheels but I guess they're a different offset or something? Anyhow, so far the most options I've found is at CarID. Anyone else had luck with retailers offering Transit-compatible wheels?
