Any reason for going with the 10.5? To the best of my knowledge the widest rim you can run is a 10 inch wide. A 10 inch wide rim though will hold up to a 315 tire I think which is a lot of tire. Also may I recommend going to 18 inch wheels. The 18" tires are less expensive and easier to find than the 17". I also think you need to roll your fenders because the tire might make contact with it. If you need more than a 315 tire then its time to step up to some DR's.

You are more than likely going to need spacers my friend. Also you are going to need to roll your fender.
