    Theoretically since they will handle a 25 inch tall tire, then you could conceiveably run a 23 inch tall wheel and 25 inch tire. and both up to about 8-9 inches wide. Not that it will look good , but if you liked that sort of thing, you could. :lol:

    In a nut shell with a 17 you can run a 245 to a 265 depending on what brakes you have, what leafs you have and if you are willing to roll the rear fenders.

    All this is on my wheel chart someone linked above but....

    17x8 4.75 BS

    Stock Drum, 5 leaf mid eye, 265 with a small spacer and rolled fenders
    SSBC disc brake, 5 leaf mid eye, 255 and rolled fenders
    Stock drum or disc brake, any leafs - 245 sometimes they rub and sometimes they don't
