First, let me say that I HAVE done extensive searching and I've learned a lot. But this issue has only been mentioned a couple of times. The general feelings were that it was not a good idea. But they seemed like opinions rather than fact.

Currently I've got a 15x10 rim, with 32x11.5 on it and they're worn out. I don't like the way it rides or looks. (I'm a skinny tire fan)

I will eventually decide on a narrower rim, (possibly OEM/despite Landpimps complaints)
but for now can I mount 33x10.5 on this rim?

Thanks everyone, I can't wait to finally come to a decision.:eek:

You can mount it, bu tI wouldnt wheel with it that way.

Sound slike you need tires now. And cannot afford the 15x8 rims you want right? If you are a skinny tire fan, why not go with some stock rims and the 33x10.5's? They will mount up fine and will be skinny to boot.

I personally woudl try to stay about 4" over the rim width with the tire width. (I run 8.5 wide rims and 12.5 tires.) Thsi will help them hold a bead and it just looks alot better!

PS- If you need some stock rims I have 2 sets that I need to sell. I will be heading to Atl in about a month and can bring them with me. PM me if you are interested in them and I can send you some pics.

Well, it's mostly an issue of I cannot come to a decision on the look I want.:confused:
So yes, basically it's all about vanity.
And a good, straight ride on the highway.

I keep going back and forth between
-91-92/ 80 series wheels
-stepping up to the 16 inch. (either aus OEM or taco rim)
-or stock 15 OEM.

It's a tough call.

But I am interested in your wheels.

I will now PM you

Thanks

Get some 15x8 Rock Crawlers if you're into the black look. Can be had for about $40 apiece, give or take $5. I would not mount a 10" tire on a 10" wheel.

I went through this with an 84 mini truck (sorry no pics). I looked horrible and wheeled even worse. It appeared as though the tires were actually narrower than the wheel! Do anything but this... I'm not sure if this helps, but I run 38.5x 15.50 swampers on those rims....now that looks great.

You can physically mount them but I would not suggest it. I think that it will create a very bad wear pattern and you will not like the ride or look.

don't do it. I had a set of 31 10.50's mounted on a 10" wheel and the tire was concave. it wore out the outer edge of the tires before it ever got to the center lugs.
