    im running (well hopefully as soon as i get my 2" body lift on, and engine troubles sorted out) 35x14.5x16.5 Swamper SSR's on 16.5x9.75 Mickey Thompson Classic II's( i believe they are like $129). Theyre a really good lookin combo, and i got all 4 in the garage. But as weak as my engine is atm im waiting to put em on. You can see a pic of the combo in the link below, "my truck now 2" album

    that's what I'm saying! I always see the cool guys driving around town with trucks that daddy bought, and when you look down what do you see? a damn 12.5 bfg on a 12 inch wide wheel. I don't think anyone has realized that just because the sidewall says it's 12.5 inches wide, IT REALLY ISN'T!! boy those things REALLY look lik they might hold a bead at street preassure. you get a slow leak and by the time you get to 15 psi the bead will come off. I run my 38.5 x 16's on 10 inch wheels.

    I'll never have aluminum rims on my Blazer againe.
    Just wait untill you drop a wheel down in a good rut and get some lose dirt and gravel in the rim scratching the hell out of the finish. Or worse yet like Mine did a rock about the size of a basket ball snaped the bead at crawl speed.
    Aluminum looks nice but on the trail its just a matter of time untill your wishing you had steel wheels. As for 12" wide rims just extra added stress on wheel bearings and the spindals. It's bad enough on those parts with big tire.

    Thank for the advice. Looks like I'll get some steel wheels no more then 10 inches wide.

    I bleed air out the sides of a 15x10 at 10 psi with 38.5 x 16" TSL's.. I was wondering what a 15x9 or 15x8 would do when forced against a wall and if it would leak less.
