Hahaha well i'm sure you're somewhat curious so i'll try to explain. The thing sticking in and out of my tire is part of a cars tire changing tool. Someone left it laying in the middle of a local trail in the part that is completely covered with trees so you can't see what's on the road ahead. It was laying perfectly flat (perpendicular to my truck) across a small rutt (parallel to my truck) and i hit it my my passenger side front tire and bent it into an L shape. When my rear tire came across, part of it was sticking at the perfect angle and went in the bottom and out the sidewall. I was probably doing 35 and heard it happen. Wasn't a blow out, more of a huge release of air pressure. You can see where it's coming out the bottom, it starts to bend. It was in an L shape but that part broke off when i put the spare on.

Fun times

The actual dimension of the tires change alittle depending on manufacturer but basically it goes like this.

If you want 32x10.50x16 then go with 265R75/16
if you want 33x11.50x16 then go with 285R75/16

There are other sizes, but you'd be better off asking a tire shop guy about those.

Hope this helps.

Hate to cover old ground, if this is, but I need an answer from someone with more experience and knowledge, please. Had a super weekend wheeling my Rubicon. failed to air down my tires, Trxus MTs 35"x12.50x15, ended up with numerous slices and a puncture! (it was a night ride and I didnt want to lose site of tailights ahead of me !) I now have a spare on 1 corner, Mickey Thompson MTZ 315x75x16. I have a question in regards to size difference. Is there enough difference that I should keep from engaging 4 wheel drive/lockers? worried about damaging spider gears, etc. In my calcuations the spare is only a couple tenths of an in off. What do you all have to say on this matter? Thanks Folks!

Yes, but that doesn't mean that it should. In this case, I wouldn't do it.

It can, heck u can mount a 10.5 wide tire on a 12" wide rim if u want. Would I do it for offroading? No way.

I have 31x10.5x15's now with a 8" wide rim and wish I had 7" wide rims. My steel rims are TRASHED from rocks because they only sit in about 1" from the outermost part of the tire. I'm talking dents gouges and chunks missing.

It really depends on your wheeling terrain and style. My rig is a beater and I treat it like one, so that's the damage I get. I should really get some rock rings on it but it might be too late.
If you only do light trails or are in mud, snow, or sand w/o rocks, you might benefit from the slightly wider tread that a wider rim would offer.
Just keep in mind the bead on the tire is a lot more likely to stay set when you air down on a narrower rim. The narrow rim 'pinches' the bead even with no pressure.

Didnt read the entire thread but has anybody mentioned General Grabber AT2s. Iv been running them for 5k now and love them. I have 31s on my stok XJ but working on it. They have no road noise and are great off road in dirt, stream beds and decent in mud. They havnt let me down yet. Highly impressed with what they allow me to do in a stocker
