I have my 35X12.5 R17 BFG M/T KM2's on 8" rims and I notice that others with the same size tire have a larger foot print. I am guessing it is rim size. I want to see any same size tires you have but on a 10" rim. Front or back shots.
Thanks

A 10" rim is far too wide, different tires have different footprints due to the actual tread width. The 12.50 portion of that number is at the widest point of the sidewall. For instance, toyo has a larger footprint...but they tend to track all over the road...so it's give and take. If you are talking about how far they stick out from the body...then that all has to so with the backspacing on your rim.

Also would depend a little on tire pressure. If you have less air, the tire would "smoosh" out more than a tire filled up really high
