Yup on my rig with no problems. Just make sure your back spacing is correct. I have 3.75 and no problems

I know it's not what you are asking for but I have 33-12.50-15's on an 8 inch rim. The tire dealer said they might not work so I told him to do it anyway it would be fine and what do you know they were fine.

Generally 4" wider tires than the wheel is as far as you should go (8" wheel/12" tire, 7"/11" tire...) but many have gone 5" wider tires than the wheel. I have 11" wide tires on 8" wheels and it holds the bead fine at 10-12psi but lower tire pressure can be run.

Another way is to sit on the pot, reach down and grip the bowl with both hands, and push against the floor with your feet.

Running tires like this is ideal off road. depending on the ratio of side wall. I would not do this if you say running 20"s on 35"s. not enough side wall to make up in the pinch, well unless we are talking 40+ tires on 20"s but by then the rim is 10-12 inches and still not as wide as a 14.5.

ON road where you loose is, you will have to run a lower PSI than what is on the Jeep or the tire. mpg and some side wall stabilty.
