    I think that the smallest is 10" wide. 12" are better. If the tire is 14.5" wide then I would go with 12". 12.5" then go with 10". and so on.

    how wide do you want to run your tires? 35x12.5x15 35x14x15? anything 12.5 and under the 9in rim's will work for anything over and i would go with a wider rim
