    are 15x12 ok for everyday driving?
    I like the look of the wide tires :D
    I am going with a 4" lift.

    I wanted 33x12.5 on 15x10's, but I was going through JEGS, and in their
    spring and lift section, they have a red dodge with tall WIDE tires, thats
    the look I really want for my truck.

    They are very hard on wheel bearings, but so are the 10's. Personally, I run my 33/12.50's on 8" rims.

    DUDE PLEASE, I want to see more pic's of your truck.
    that stance is what I want. But I know you have more than
    a 4" lift. But the wheels i want as mean looking as I can get.
    but street stable.

    i think even a 10 inch rim is to wide for a 12.50 tire, i had a set of 35/12.50/15 all terrains on 10 inch rims and they seemed a little wide :dunno:

    12" rims are fine, no problem on the street. I have ran 14" rims for a long time now without any issues. I LOVE the wide tire look myself, thats why I run 16.5x14 Welds on 35x16 boggers. Plus with wide rims I don't have to air down because I already have a flat foot print.

    It sounds like a 15x12 on a 33x14.50 tire would be a good combo for you.

    I'd say a 15x10 wheel on a 33x12.50 tire... or a 15x12 on a tire wider like a 14.50, or a 16in wide... But I think if your gonna get wider than 12.50, you should go taller than a 33. Just my opinion.
