anyone run 33x12.5x15 on 15x7 rim?

Can get a great deal on hankooks but I heard its not a good move to fit 12.5s on 15x7 rim. If not I have to shell out another 300 for 10.5s but I wouldn't mind if it means I can air down more and its better overall. Thanks guys

its more of a safety issue. the minimum i would run 33 x 12.50"s on a wheel at least 8" wide. i run 33 x 12.50 R15 on 15 x 8" wheels on my sport trac and never had a problem.

It's possible to do, it just isn't recommended. If you air them down any, you run greater risks of the tire popping off of the rim. 15x8 is generally the recommended minimum size for 12.50s.
