Hey all,

I'm looking at getting these for some off-road use. I was told at the tire store that both 215/70 r16 and 235/60 r16's would fit on my '10 Premium. I have the stock 17" tires on now. The 235's will cost a tad more but other than that which of these will be the better choice for off-roading? I just am wanting some basic steel wheels but don't want to worry about offset issues, rubbing, etc. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. thanks!

Be aware the offset for your foz is 48mm. You can find nice alloy rims at tirerack for under a 100 buck each.
As for the tire, I plan to buy those same tires. However, I am sticking with the stock size. I do not need an extra 1/4 " ground clearance.

You can stick with your stock 17" wheels and fit the Geolandar A/T-S still. I've got 225/60/17 on stock 17" wheels.
