It causes the tires to baloon out from the wheel. If you dont run lower air pressure the center tread will wear down much quicker as well.What happens running them on narrower rims? I have heard this before myself, never a solid explanation though. It's always "just don't do it". I know narrower is normally more desirable when aired down.
Is this the same firestone tires that blew up and caused all those accidents? They sure know well :rofl:I worked maintenance in a firestone factory for several years.they had a section with machines to test tires.they would test these tires with different size rims,different air pressures,different loads and at different temperatures.they would test all the different tires under just about any condition you could imagine and run them until they blew out for what ever reason.So,I have seen first hand why the manufacturer knows a lot better than I do..
Good choice. What I've seen most on trail rigs, non bead lock, is about. 4" difference between the width of the tire and wheel. 14.5 wide tire on a 10" wide wheel and a 12.5" wide tire on a 8" wide wheel. For a 10" wide tire, a 7 inch tire is what I see recommended most.15 x 10 it is! I want to drive mine on the road as well.
