You just want either a wide wheel or a spacing on the wheel that will through the wheel out further

Looks like some 17x8" wheels with about 3" backspacing. The tires look like some 32s--say a 265/70/17.

to me it looks like the tires are a little to big for the wheels. but to get the tires to stick outside of the wheel wells you just need to change the backspacing on the wheels
