jeepmutt You'll be fine. I assume the rubbing you care about is at full turn, not full articulation. If stuffing the wheel wells on the rocks IS your concern, longer bumpstops are cheap enough. The tires/wheels will stick out some past the flares, but in AZ you'll never care. (In the NorthEast extending beyond the flares sprays mud, snow, road salt, etc. all over the sides.) I agree that 8" wheels would hold the bead better at low pressures, but the 8" ones aren't free. A 7" wheel is pretty skinny and will create a lot of sidewall bulge for an 11.5" wide tire, IMO.

khenderson yeah....but wheels that are a little off but free is so much better than buying wheels that would be completely correct.

You may also run into trouble keeping the tire on the bead at lower pressures because of the wider rim. I would recommend an 8" wheel (even 7" would work) for those tires.

Yeah they'll fit, but they will be WAY out from under the wheel flares.
