    Which model do you have?
    Does that have flared wheel arches?
    How much clearance do you get to the upper control arm with which tyres?
    Thank you, much appreciated.

    I have a highline
    just the standard arches that come with the highline
    it would be no more then 5mm clearance from upper contorl arm...

    OK now I need to figure out if mine has the same wheel arches.(They certainly look the same)
    Find a wheel with the same offset as the Aldo wheel and I will be right.
    Does your tyre sit above the control arm?
    Is that a 265/70/17?
    I forgot to add;
    My preference is for 16's, cheaper, more available, more choice.
    The Taruma wheel is 6,1/2" wide. Does that overcome the control arm issue as that wheel also has a much higher offset? (62mm)
    My stock steelies are 8" wide with an offset about 47mm.
    Run the 32" on those wheels will hit the control arm.
