View Full Version : Rim, Tire, Question

08-13-2005, 07:07 PM
Okay i have a 4wd import truck. i have 31x10.50/15 tires that are bald and need replacing. So im thinking of buying 33x12.50/15 which are wider tires then i have right now. I have the stock rims on right now that are 15x7

okay the 31inch tires that are on the truck right now are not even quarter of an inch from the shock mount. So the new tires i want will rub for sure on the shock mount.

so my questions are changing the rims wont do anything about the tire being farther away from the shock mount right?

will a 15x7 rim be too small for a 12.50 width tire?

where can i get rims that are 15x10 just steels 6/139.7???

if you change your rims offset (new rims) then yes it will set it out some, see here:

you may be able to find some spacers as well, best bet is to talk to a 4x4 shop....

You should also mount 12.5 wide tires on an 8 inch wide rim. On a 7 inch wide wheel, they will likely bulge in the middle and wear out quicker. Also will have more of a tendency to lose the bead.

try Canadian Wheel, all they sell is wheels and lug nuts
I once worked there and they have 15x10 steel in diff bolt patterns.
