15X10 rims on an XJ?? Yes or no...
 
My son likes them. His ride. They are used... price is right, but I think too wide. Will be mounting 33s.

Thanks

eh, I would only run a 10" wide rim on 14.50" wide tires maybe 12.50". I plan on running my 8" wide rims with 33/12.50/15 tires.

Yeah, I'm trying to visualize what they would look like, but I have nothing to use as a reference. I wasn't planning on using tires wider than 10.5", but with a 10" rim I would go at least 12.5. I definitely don't want anything wider than that. Any turning issues with wider tires?

Jeep will get front and rear trim jobs and bastard pack lift.

If you guys say so I'll let him buy them.

I would definitely not run a 10.50" wide tire on a 10" rim. I see 12.50 pushing it but that is just me. I would run 12.50 tire on a 10" wide beadlocked rim so I wouldn't have the chance of blowing a bead with them.

My buddy has 15/10 rim on 31/10.50/15 with I think 3.75 backspacing, not completely sure on the BS.

12.50 is alright with 10" wide wheels.

These are 35x12.50 on 15x10 wheels.

My bad... I would be running 15X8 rims with 10.5 tires. I'm mostly curious about 12.50s on 10" rims and how that would look/handle up front? If they fit alright I'll let my son grab the used rims and we'll go 12.5s. Otherwise, we'll go with 8 inchers.

Great pic! Thank you, Sir.

I have to agree that 10" is wider than ideal. Not to say that it wouldn't work for simple DD'ing though.
I run 35x12.5x15 tires on 8" rims and don't air down to less than 15psi, at which point I still have occasional issues with mud or tree bark bead contaminations causing seepage.

rugsucka 06-28-2013 09:57 PM

I run psi < 15 often in my 33x12.5x15 MTZ's on 15x10 rims. I have not had bead blowing issues and run blues and blacks.

I was concerned at first, but have found myself down ~12 psi and all was well.

I got a good deal on my wagon wheels or I would have probably ran 8" rims too.

For a DD and even moderate wheeling, 15x10 is fine.

ItsJustD 06-29-2013 01:07 AM

They're fine for a lot more than just simple DDing, I haven't had an issue yet running 15x10 in Big Bear, Cleghorn and tons of local trails. Yes you can't air down as much and you're more likely to blow a bead.

Here are a few more pics

This is a perfect picture. I was curious about the profile of the tire. I'm old skool and ignorant, and I don't want that bulging-tire-mounted-on-too-narrow-a-rim look. My son is 14. His XJ will be "done" when he is 16. I'm accumulating things! It will mostly be DD. So no steering issues? I understand about the 33s, and I will cut the wheel wells, plus ~3" of lift. The PO of my CJ5 wore the front fenders away with too large a tire, by scrubbing when he turned. I want to avoid that.

Thanks for the pics and comments.

I was thinking that picture would work nicely for you, and I understand about the whole too-narrow rim look. Makes me gag every time, as for the 15x10's they're not bad. I'm honestly looking for some 15x8's because I prefer the look and the fact I can air down more.

Thanks D. Going back over this I see I got it wrong! I meant to say bulging tire on too WIDE a rim... but you get my point.

So the general consensus is 15X10s with 33s is okay on the front of an XJ?

rugsucka 06-29-2013 06:04 PM

Yes it's ok.

Either 8" or 10" is going to be fine.

I like my 10" stance, it looks good and you can still air down very low when you wheel.

Skerr 06-29-2013 08:33 PM

Thanks, Guys, for the input.

No, I got what you meant I typed it incorrectly. the whole narrow tire stretched to a big rim thing right?
