    Im thinking about geting some 33x12.50R16 super swamper radials and wanted to know what they would look like mounted on a 16x8" rim(i curently am running these wheels and they are nice so i want to keep them). So pics of this combo would be awsome. And opinons as to wheather or not the 12.50 is too wide to use on the 8"rim are needed as well. Thanks in advance! /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    I think 12.50's on 8 inch wheels are perfect, they hold the bead well and stand the tire up. Sorry, dont have 33's so no photos....

    Hey, I'm running 33 x 12.5 x 15's on a 15 x 8 rim, same as the 16". It holds the bead really good and makes the tire stand a tad taller /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
