17x9 pic request

Im about to buy some dr-31 17x9 rims. Im currently on just swift springs and would like to see if any one is running 17x9 with swifts. I really just wanna see how it looks, im getting either new shocks/springs or just going coilovers but that will wait till after winter. Thanks.

Crap i meant to say 17x9 on the title lol

I think I am also about to buy 17x9 wheels so I am curious as well. What size tires are you looking at?

Im not sure they come with tires already. Idk the size of them yet, but they are like 60-70% left so i will replace them soon. Also FXTSPORTS im prob picking them up this weekend. So ill just throw them on and take a pic so you can get an idea. Ill be down by you too, picking them up hopefully in King of Prussia.

I run 17x9 +42 w/ 245/45/17 and love it. Wheel offset, tire size and suspension will pay a big role in this equation...
