Default Turning to the dark side

After some research I have decided to run a c/t on the rear of my 2002 RSW. Got a BFG g-force sport comp-2 size 225/45/17. From what iv'e read this will fit fine, but holy **** does this look big. Any one know if this will fit on the stock rim? Thanks in advance.

Yes it fits, that's the tire I run, the edges are slightly rounded, you'll be pleasantly surprised how well it handles!

Wow! I thought the widest ct that would fit a stock rim was a 235...
