Wheel and Tire question!

I currently am running Big O Bigfoot 31X10.5's, if I buy a set of 15X10 mickey thompsons would the 31X10.5's fit on them? I was planning on getting 33X12.5's once they bald but i was just wondering if i could go ahead and get the wheels. Or would i need to buy 15X8's and once I get the 33X12.5's buy the 15X10's?

33x12.5 fits on a 15x8 wheel perfectly. So. If that helps the decision at all.

You won't really want a 10.5" tire on a 10" wheel IMO. Besides 10's are heavy....

Awesome thanks, I just assumed i would need the wider size for the wider tire. This makes things a lot easier

I would also be concerned about popping the bead on a 15x10 with those size tires. I am running 33x10.5" on 15x8" wheels. Most 33x12.5" run 15x8" as well.
