beating the old horse...what wheels do i need for these tires #773801 12/20/06 03:15 AM

i bought some 33x12.50x15 tires with the intentions of buying 10x15 rims, but i ran out of money. i have three sets of 8x15 rims too. everyone tells me that i need 10s, but my bro-in-law says that a forum for pittsburgh wheelers say that 8s are not only the way to go, but that they are less likely to break the bead. what do you guys think?

Body Damage is Cool

I have a buddy that has a set of 33x12.5's on 15x6's, and have heard many other people that have done the same. So 15x8's will be plenty for 12.5's. 15x8's and 33's are a very common combination in general anyway. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

You don't need a 10" rim for a 33x12.50 tire. An 8" rim works perfect on a 12.50 tire.

Ditto,

15x8 will be perfect.

Use the 15x8 wheels. The 15x10 wheels wil tend to pop the bead when aired down more often. Also, with 15x8 wheels, the sidewall of the tire will stick out more from the wheel, protecting the wheel more than with a 15x10 wheel. Although that latter advantage is probably only important if you are running alloy wheels rather than steel wheels.
