Question 15X8 American Racing Wheel questions

I am currently running 32X11.5 BFG's on 15X8 American Racing Sawblades. I want to go up a tire size. Can I run 33X12.5's on this rim? Thanks in advance

Am I more likely to lose my bead on the trail?

I'm less likely? I've heard with a wider tire you have more of a chance of losing a bead. OK, sounds good. Thanks folks!

The wider wheel you go, the more likely you might lose a bead, but that's at low pressure, say under 8 lbs.

I have 35x12.50x15 MTRs on 15x8 wheels, no bead lock, and I run mine at 12 off road. No issues
