    I was looking at national tire and wheel at some ground hawgs. they had some hawgs that were 36x14.50rlt and 38x15.50r15lt . both of these they had a 15 x 10 rim recommended. wont that make the center bulge up and wear faster?? you can check it yourself on the specs page and see if im just reading it wrong. also im assuming that (o.d.) means outside diamater of the tire.

    ground hawgs

    thanks

    They really like the 15x10 wheel. I had my 40" tires on 10 and yes they did wear funny at full PSI. I had to run them at about 15-20 to make then wear right.

    i thought that it would wear funny.do you have any probs running down the road with the lower pressure? (eg) bulging sides wandering, peolple flagging you down ect. i think a 12 inch rim would make my turning radius go to crap or rip some sheetmetal up pretty bad

    Nope, no problems. I am not that sure if a 12" would help that much. They said to run the 44" on 12" but I put them on 14" and I still have to run them at 20 PSI.

    i looked at your pics to see if i saw any probs. where did you order the barts wheels from? i thought a 12 might help but make other problems. im just not sure about running that wide a tire on a narrow rim. seems like it might blow off if im doing donuts.

    They are Eaton wheels, but they are made by Bart. I got them from summit, they had the best deal. The prices were the same as everwhere else but they do FREE shipping. I never had any problems. (I do donuts too /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif) Donuts, Burnouts, ECT. No problems.

    i ran my 40's on 10inch rims for over 4years, with no problem. and at the time i wasn't real good about checking my tire preasure. they were 17 in wide tread. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifto /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
