i run a 36x12.50-15 tire on a 15x10" rim and run 10psi in them always.....i wish i had a wider tire. they look too skinny and its not a wide enough foot print for wheelin' on a tire that tall...in my opinion.
it all depends on your setup, your tires and if its a daily driver or you actually use it.
i don't really like the look of a 33" on a 10" wide wheel though....so anything over that i would recommend a 10" wide wheel.

I just put 15X10's and 35s on my Jeep. (First Jeep, first time EVER changing wheels or tire size) So being the resident ******* I went to Goodyear's page and they recommended no smaller than 8.5" and no greater than 11" wheels for my MTRs. Funny thing is, the sand guys pick on not having 8", and the hotrod guys pick on not having 12". So if nobody thinks I'm a genius, I must be doing something right

Please don't flame:

I'm running 30" on 15x7. After lift going to run DuraTrax 33x12.5. One posted stated these run alittle narrow.
? Could these run on 7" rims safely? DD and towed behind RV. Was looking to buy 5 more rims and get 8's.

Thanks

most 1250s usually say 8.5" so I feel the regular 8" most of us use are already pushing it

Pushing the limit beyond the manufacturer's recomendations is what I mean when I say "pushing it" . Some tire places won't mount the combination you are asking about . look around the forum and see what the rest are doing . Most any tire we use can be mounted on an 8-10" .

....I also run a 12.50, on a 10" wheel....and haven't had any problems yet...but, I'm new at this....so I guess time will tell, huh? I think it looks tougher, and seems to work pretty well, for me.....so far.

those same tire manufactur's will also say never air down, dont offroad blah blah to cover their ***. it is well known that the "8 is perfect for a 12.5 tire

The only thing that could be considered "pushing" it is that a tire can fold over on itself in a turn. But it dont apply to us for the fact you need speed, Graduated corner and 10psi in your tires on the road. Thats too many factors for a "might". If you do fall under those you shouldn't be in a jeep.
When i say speed, Thats 75+mph. Jeeps are not sports cars or even a SUV to chance at high speeds or turning with much force.

All manufactures recommend 8.5-11" wheel. But thats for street use no matter if its a a/t or m/t. But you also have to factor that all tires but SS come under sized and not a true 12.50 width. So with a under sized tire I'm pretty sure the .5 difference is IMO not a factor. As mentioned its to cover their ***. If you read the fine print off road to them is a gravel road and a pasture.
Either way it comes down to preference and what kind of wheeling you do and how much time you jeep is spent on road.

I guess you could also just look at the Jeeps in the forum, signatures, profiles and see who is running what and then you know you are not getting " Do as I say not as I do" .
