Well, I'd say to stick with the 8" rims with those tires. Since the tire is only an inch and a half wider then the rim, you'll only have an overhang on each side of about 3/4". You'll be more likely to thrash a rim out on the trail, and more likely to blow a bead when aired down.

If you were going with a 13.5" tire, a 10" rim would do fine, but with the 11.5" rubber I say stick with the skinny rim.

Thanks for the input. I've just got stock wheels & tires now & wasn't sure what i needed. Generally speaking where is the "break" to a wider rim? 12.5-13.5 ? OH Nices pics to!! Thanks

12.5 on an 8" rim is the generally recommended max IIRC.

I have 10x15 with 31x10.5x15.....and everything is Ok

With 32" you can use 8" rims or 10" rims.....you choose but in my opinion 10" rims are nicer

Yea, I didn't know if 12.5 tires would look too "balloony" on a 8" rim. Definately looks like those 11.5"s handle skinny rims just fine to me.
I have 2.5 lift & am goint to put on TJ flares so i'm looking at putting on 32x11.5 or 32x12.5! I think i may stay with the 11.5 tires

thanks! I just followed the edge along the top (where the flare would bolt to). Then for the back part just checked how far back I could trim and drew a straight line. I'm debating on trimming the top part off and following the hood line to get a bit more clearance.

Thanks for the pics FRUMPY. Really from what you guys have showed me 10.5" to 13.5" widths ALL look good.

NOW THE BAD NEWS: FREAKIN WIND!!! just headed out to my shop to finish welding up the rear rock crawler bumper i'm making, came around the corner of my driveway to find my kids's portable basketball goal BLOWN over on my JEEP It dented the front driver fender & hood, chipping off some paint with it. Its not like i have a new paint job but that kind of crap just PI$$es me off. Sometimes you just can't win!!!

That sucks.

Just keep in mind with my 13.5s they are on bead lock rims. It's doable without bead locks but I don't know how much I would trust it.
