Geneal Grabber AT2 wheel size

Hey all,

I'm going to purchase general grabber at2 33/12.5R15 108Qs. The general grabber website specs informs that the tires minimum wheel size is 8.5" to maximum 11".

I like the MB 72s and Razors wheels, they come in 8", and 10" wheel widths.

Is 8" too small and is 10" to wide? Thanks

Youll be fine with 8"

The 8" will require less offset and provide a little more rim protection. Some tire shops like nitpicking rims and tire specs so they may complain.

What are the risks of running a tire on an 8" wheel when it's rated for 8.5" - 11"? Blowout while offroad maybe? Or at half an inch it doesn't really matter?

Half inch won't matter. If were really too narrow it would be very difficult to mount the tire and maybe the bead could be damaged in the process. The sidewalls would also bulge. It is a bigger problem with low profile tires which the JK (hopefully) are not.

Many of us run tires that require 8 or 8.5" rims min on the stock 7.5" rims.
