    it is the width you will have a problem with.I've had 31x10.50 0n wheels that size.thats prolly the max.
    IT was a little squishy side to side for driving on streets.

    Swamper Q78's work just fine on that size wheel. A good chance the 35x10.5" SSR would work too.

    I ran 35x12.5's on that exact size rim for 7 years (friend has em now) The must have better than 50,000 miles on them.

    I never had any problems with them that way, and they have worn very evenly (except for one front that got cupped when a ball joint went bad)

    Mudhog runs 39.5 x 13's on some 16" x 6.5" rims...

    The larger sidewalls are a lot more forgiving.
