So in the end your set. Enjoy the new tires, post pics when you get them
Cool thanks man. Will do!

And there should be markings on the inside of the rim saying something like Made in USA 15x8.0 wide j.j. DOT CT&W.
Cool! Thank you! But unfortunately it looks like I need new rims if I want 33 x 12.5s :/

XJ Knight We love pictures

RubiCobra Well since you have 10.5's now I would bet you have 15x8's

You can technically put 12.5's on those. Although I would go with 10" wide rims for 12.5's

Do you have one handy? Check the rim for a size or part number stamped on the wheel itself.

Blsport7 I know they are 15's but I dot know how to figure out the width
09-14-2012 01:00 PM
RubiCobra What size are the rims? Width most importantly.

Might be a stupid question but.....

If I have 31 x 10.5 tires on steel rims.. How do I know if I can fit 33 x 12.5 tires on the same rims?... If I can at all.. Thanks!
