    I have some TSL Radial 36x12.50x16 tires. Interco's website shows that they need a 16x10 rim to run on. Is there a serious drawback to running them on 16x8s????? will it just pop the bead easier? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    No serious drawbacks. mat make the sidewalls bulge a little and you might have to experiment with air pressure to get them to wear evenly on the street. I know many people run 12.50 tires on 8" wide rims with no problems whatsoever. Actually it will be harder to break the bead /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
