    35x12.5\'s on 8\" or 10\" rim?

    It's for a daily driver, I notice my 32x11.5's wearing funny because of the narrow rim.

    Anyone with pics of 30-somethingx12.5" tires on stock rims? Problems?

    If I get 10" rims what back spacing does a stock rim have and what would I need to recenter the 10" rim?

    I've got 35x12.5's with 10'' rims and really wish I had gone with 8''s. the 10''s love to get bit by everything.

    33-12.5 and 36-12.5 .. both on 15x8. The 33's are on the stock ralley wheels, the 36's are on Outlaw II's.
    side by side #1

    side by side #2

    So far either set has worn evenly. I have aired them down to 8-10# and have not lost a bead yet.

    For a 12.5 wide tire stick with the 8" rims. It puts more strain on your front/rear end the wider your wheels are. The axles were designed to use a 8" so if they are stock axles then it's best for the component wear to use stock size rims.
    Hope this helps /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I've got 35x12.5 on stock rims and have never had a problem.
