Tire diameter is a more important factor to fitment than wheel diameter....

What tire size are you looking to use?

OK...that's 29.4" tires.....

If your off-set ain't right....I'd say there's a good chance you'll rub the fenders/quarter panels with every time you hit a bump/imperfection in the road.

Check your clearance now to ensure that your tires tuck in. If they don't, that 1" to 1.25" drop can cause you issues unless you roll the fenders....
