    I am running 14.50 sx's on a 15x8, Haven't got to drive/wheel it yet but don't really see a problem. I do plan on welding on beadlocks so it should widen to 9.75-10"

    I run 33x12.50's on a 6.75" wide wheel. Was amazed at how nice they look. 16.5's and haven't blown a bead yet.....of course I haaven't gone below 30 psi yet either :haha:
    thanks,

    Thanks guys I have a set of new boggers and wanted some 8" rims and later down the line weld some beadlocks on them.That way I guees it would give me a 10" rim as stated.I guess Ill be looking at the 15-8" 8 luggers for my d60 with 3.25b/s from ntw $65 a piece or so.
