    If i were to go with the 15x8's instead of the 15x10 wheels, would it provide more protection for my sidewalls as well? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif I will run 35x12.5x15 Goodyear wrangler mt/r's. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Reason I asked is because I been out wheeling with my brother in his rig twice and both times he blew the sidewalls. He has like a 93 ford f-250 diesel with 33x12.5x16.5 bf goodrich all-terrain t/a's and 16.5x10's. Man do those tires just suck or what?

    It will protect the bead , but sidewall will still be out there . Just get decent tires with more plies. I have cheaper tires , and have done rocks and dirt with no problems with 12.5 wide on 15x8 's /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
