    10\" wheels

    Can I run 31-1050-15 or 32-1150-15 tires on 15x10 wheels? What size tire did the 89's come with from the factory?

    <font color="green"> You can run them, but they'll look kinda funny.

    I ran 31/1050/15 on 15x10 wheels and they looked much better than on 8", but I wouldn't recommend them off road.
    You want a smaller rim for bead retention.
    They looked like much bigger tires on the wider rims though.

    The '90 Jimmy I had came with 15 x 7's from the factory. I ran a 12.50 inch tire on them for almost a year without any trouble.

    I run 32x11.50's on my 10" rims and they look quite normal. I haven't had any problem with them. The only problem is you can't air them down quite as much as running them on a skinnier rim.

    32/1150 is the smallest size tire I would run on a 10" rim. I ran 31/1050s on my 10" rims for a couple of month before I had money to buy some 33/1250s and I didn't like how it looked at all.
