IF you want wider wheels goto a 8" I run 12 PSI on the trails and don't have to worry about popping a bead it did great in the soft sand in Moab

BTW the tires are 33x10.50

You need a wider tire, not taller for a 10inch rim. Putting a 12.5 wide tire on a 10 in rim would be better (such as a 33x12.50). The general rule of thumb if my memory serves me is to look up the manufacturer specified tire tread width and not run a rim wider than that.

If you run 10.5 wide tires my recommendation would be to run no wider than an 8in rim.

I think thats exactly what he was planning to do. There are 31s that are 12.5" wide.

I run 33x12.50's on 15X10" wheels. I like the way it looks and I have aired down to 12 psi and not popped a bead. I dont have any pics here at work, but ill try to post some.

Awesome. I just wanted to make sure he wasnt thinking that a 33x10.50 would be good on a 10 inch rim (especially since 33x10.50 BFG tires are fairly popular). That being said I plan to run my new 33x12.50s on an 8 in wide rim
