Diameter of the wheel would not be a factor as long as the tire was the right size for the wheel. 15 inch is the most common.

As to width, which is what I think you're talking about, I'm running a 12.50 tire on an 8 inch wheel.

Width... thats what I ment... T-minus an hour till quiting time... My jeep came with 7" wheels and its not recommended to put a 12.5" tire on that.
