how wide are the tires?

first thought would be no, as I couldn't imagine you running a 28" tire that's at least 12 inches wide...

I sure wouldn't run a 10" wide wheel with only an 11.5" wide tire.

ok, right... i just figured out the whole tyre width thing (dropped one too many times as an infant)...

I guess the 15X8 with 28s will work great on a stock suspension then?

Follow up question. Will the 'flex' on a stock suspension with 28s be comparable to a 2'' BB and 31s

I am just trying to figure out if there is 'economies of scale'
