70 Degrees F says we can do it at my place. She can drop it off and pick it up the next day.

On a 15x8 wheel I can safely place a 31x10.5 tire, correct? I think I have that right from our conversation but wanted to double check as I shop for wheels.

Thats right photo.... 31x10.5 will very easily and safely fit on a 15x8 wheel. Was a pleasure to meet you as well and if you need anything, just let us know. Always willing to help out a fellow Jeeper.
