    33\" tires

    Will 33x12.50r15 tires fit on stock 15x8" rally wheels without causing handling problems or abnormal wear or would it be nessisary to get 15x10" rims?

    I like the look a lot more with a 15x10 inch rim, when you are talking about a 12.50 inch wide tire. But yea, the 15x8's would work just as well.

    I like the 8" rims with 12.50" tires keeps the tire on the bead a little better when you air down.Also keeps the tires inside the truck better.Brady

    will 31x10.50 go on a 10 in wide wheel until I can buy my 33's? That seems kinda close to the rim being too wide for the tire.

    I have 33's on my stock 8" wheels. Absolutely no problem. They stand a little taller with the stock rims. Actually lifted my truck about an inch and a half.
