I screwed up which may be your gain.  I purchased an N85,  17”,  5 spoke cast aluminum wheel plus a brand new Goodyear Fortera 225/60 R17 tire. I had planned to do some off roading at Cape Cod.  I was told over the phone that a minimum of 225 and tread width of 8.5” was acceptable.  When I brought my 2004 AWD Aztek to be inspected, I was informed that I needed a 70 series tire, a 60 series wouldn’t do.  As much as I tried, I couldn’t convince the park official to change his mind.  I looked on the net using a tire equivalent translator for a possible future size change when these wear out.  Nothing really worked.

The wheel which is like brand new cost me $185, the tire $132 and the mounting and balancing $15.  Total of $332.  I will sell the whole set up for $275 plus shipping. I assume shipping won’t be cheap.

If anyone is interested let me know.  I live in Connecticut.

Thanks, Don
