    does anyone have pics of tires mounted on 16.5x6.75" wheels? maybe some slightly wide tires? Has the tire wear been really abnormal in the center of the tread? Does the tire hold a bead extra well becaues the wheel is so narrow? looking foward to seeing whats out there on stock wheels :bow: :bow: :bow:
    thanks,
    James

    that would be good. They are close enough to 12.50's that it would give me an idea. How wide are your wagon wheels?

    good question... they might be 9.75" wide US wheel 75s... and in that case they wouldn't do you much good as far as wide tires on a narrow rim. :crazy: I dont know their width... because I just got them on the tow rig. :)

    So they wre a pain to mount? I wonder what's involved in mounting them myself,,, that would probably be above my skill level/ abilities.. If you can find pics, that would be good :bow:
