The problem with that size tire, though is the load rating isn't high enough, even in reinforced versions.

Tire God, you might as well elaborate for those, who will surely ask WTF is "load rating" and what it means to me and my 6.

for the pictures, upload them to imageshack, it will give you an address to paste in.

are you sure you didn't pull the fenders out to fit them? that wheel at the highest offset still puts it almost 2" further out than the stock wheel?

I did mine with a $9 wooden baseball bat. It's no big deal.

load rating is one of the most important thing to consider when purchasing tires, me thinks you should read this sticky:
