Wagon wheel tire width?
Just wondering how wide of tire you can go on the stock white wagon wheels? I love the old school look of them been thinking of doing some DIY beadlocks and then powder coatin them black
Well there 15x7, and I have 33x12.50" tires on mine, which I think is the widest you can go, the benefit is I can air down quite low and dont have to worry about it coming off the bead. Whereas a 15x10 rim would give the tire a wider contact patch but wouldn't be able to air down as much since it isn't squeezing the tire like that 15x7.
Weld on bead locks will add a little less than a inch to the rim width. I'd use a 15x8 with a 13. 50 or a 12.50.
