    I currently have 15/39.5/15 tsl's on my truck with 15 x 10 8lug rims w/ 4/25 bs. The front tires are new with only one trail run on them and the rears were found in a backyard so they have 1/2 tread and sun damage. Anyhow, I want to run boggers in the rear and i was wondering if my 10" wide rims are to narrow for the 18/39.5/15 boggers. Do you guys think my rims will work, or do you think i need to find some 12" wide or 14" wide rims. What do you think.

    they are too narrow. minimum a 12" wheel. check www.intercotire.com they will tell you what rim size too run.

    10" is more than enough

    For an 18" wide Bogger? I think that's too much tire for a 10" wide rim. I'd go with 12" wide wheels for those.

    you can run 44s on an 8" rim... I think a 10" rim will be plenty.

    A 10" rim plenty for the 39x18 Bogger. I have several friends running 15" wide tires on 8" rims, and tons of people run that wide of a tire on Hummers rims that are only around 8" wide.
