    It's been a while since I have looked at this site, but anyway......I'm running 15x14 wheels with 39.5 Boggers mounted up. I noticed the wide wheels put a lot of strain on the driveline, so I want to go back down to a smaller rim. Plus the tires stick out pretty far on the truck. The question is, 15x10 or 15x12? I was pushing for the 15x10, but maybe the extra 2" the 15x12 gives would help on the wide tire. Any comments or suggestions welcome.

    The 15x10 is plenty enough for the 39s, but the 15x12 would make your tires appear larger. /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    My boggers on 15x16's measure out at 37" Tall, and 20.5" Wide. I am going with some 15x8's, and putting beadlocks on them, so they'll end up being about 15x10's. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
