Wheel size for 32x11.50x15 tires
 
I just picked up a set of MTR/K's at a great price, I have a 2.5 lift and was wondering what size ( width) of rim would be best for this tire. Or more importantly what backspacing...any ideas?
Thanks

I run 4" backspace with 15x7 wheels and 34x10.50x15 tyres
With 33x12I would look at 8" wide wheels and same 4" backspace :)
Your tyre is inbetween so make your choice :)

If mjne, I would go 7" wide ( I run about 12 psi) while wheeling ;)

I would go with a 10" rim. In the future with bigger/wider tires, you will thank yourself. My last set of tires was 32x11.5 on a 10" rim and they were 3 1/2" backspacing I believe, but it may have been 4". I honestly can't remember

15x7 or 15x8. I ran 32 11.5s on 15x7s and they worked great on the trails. 10 in wide wheels are just too wide if you ever air your tires down. I was losing beads with 13.5 wide tries and 15x10 wheels. I'm now running 33 13.5s on 8.75 wide wheels or there about.

I have 32's on 15x8 black rocks.

I run 10psi rear and 12psi front. No problems with de beading at all.

I was originally thinking 15x10, but I hope to start wheeling with this yj soon, so I'm leaning toward 15x8 now, given your responses. I was looking at MT classics, with 3.75 backspacing so I better start saving again.
Thanks for all the input :thumb:

Those are some nice wheels, but if a wheel a few trails like I do, steel wheels ( tho hevier) are the aay to go :)

I run crager soft 8's and they are all bent up ( compared to normal car wheel) but still hold air and a cemblance of balance :)

Alum. Can crack or break! ;)

Thread after thread on here about this topic. 31x10.50's to 33x12.50's all recommend a 8" wheel. Running 3.75 backspacing with 31x10.50x15's on 15x8 wheels.

I am sorry for giving the wrong info, I was tired. :facepalm:
I looked at mine today and they are 8" wide not 10". I had a set of 10" wheels on my last rig with some 39.5" SuperSwampers. 8" is what you need, and the other posters are correct about losing the bead on a wheel that is too wide
