    pretty much what the title says. I got 4 brand new super swampers tsl's (33x12.50) and I need to know if they will mount on my 15x8 rockcrawlers? My neighbor says I need to use 15x10's...but I don't have much money right now. Please give advice if anyone can!

    thanks!

    yes they work.

    i have 33's on a 15x7 right now. Anything larger then 12.50 then yes, you should go larger in rim size, but if all your doing is pavement pounding you might be ok.

    Me personaly like the 15x8 rim with a 12.50 width tire. Saves the rim's from scuffing when rock crawling. I ran 35x12.50's on my jeep for the longest time on 15x8's no problems, not even when i aired down low.

    i did it for a long time. It looks and functions a lot better, IMO, on x8s that x10s. I want to get some 15x8s again for my 40" TSLs.

    I prefer the look of the 15x10, personally.

    15x8 is better for low pressure or rock crawling stuff but 15x10 is better for street use because the tire doesn't "balloon".

    I have 37x12.5s on 15X8s. I will prolly keep these rims and beadlock them when I run my 42s:D.
