Factory Canyons are 7" wide and 5" bs, correct?

What's the widest tire you can safely run and air down on a 7" rim?

just checked and on steelies it is 6# more per rim for 10s than 8s
there is more weight difference from one brand mud tire to the next than that.
and the weight of the tire matters more as far as rotational mass resistance b/c its farther from the center

Still, that is 24lbs more, when you could have a 8" wheel w/3.25-3.75 bs.

Either way, I am not a fan of steelies. I got a set of zj canyons (15x7) and was going to run a 1-1.5 spacer. That, compared to a steel 15x10 is about 60lbs less per set (34lbs vs 19lbs). I know that doesn't sound like much, but that extra weight also affects wear and tear on steering and more weight for stopping IMO.

it would probably wear brakes a little more, but we won't hesitate to throw 400# of accessory on them either haha
i guess i get it if you really want to stay with the stockies, i just happen to have the ugliest stocks they ever made on mine!

Lol.. my zj came w/the "gambler" wheels. While they look cool, I don't like them on a zj. So i sold the wheels and tires, and threw on the spare set of "sawblades" from my old xj. Talk about ugly!

I have 5 zj canyons waiting for big tires. I only paid $120 for all 5 on CL, but it was a pain to find them.

I've heard those called "spiderweb" or "snowflake" rim.
