    I just bought a set of 35X14.50x15 swamper thornbirds and I was wondering if running a 15x12 would be ok rather than a 15X10.I would like to go to a 40"tire later on so thats why I'm leaning towards the 12"if anyone has rims pm me thanks... /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    Deffentally go with a 12" wide wheel, my buddy was running 33 14.50 15 mickey tompsons on a 10 wide wheel and it looked nasty and wore the centers out BAD, then he switched to a 12wide and it looks way better and wears more evenly but now he has switched to 35 14.50 15 boggers /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
