    Rim width is a personal choice as mentioned in your other post. Yes the 17 is the width of the tire. You can run whatever rim width you would like, but a 12" wide rim is as wide as I would go personally. You could go to a 14" wide rim and be fine with a 17" wide tire, but that is just a lot of leverage hanging off the end of and axle especially with a 40" tire.

    Just my .02
