15 X 8 wheels, what width tire?

I bought the YJ with some Ultra 5 spoke aluminum wheels that measure 15 X 8.
What width(s) of tires would work.

I found some slightly used 30x9.50x15generic M/T's and was wondering if that width would be compatible with an 8" wide rim.

they'll work but they might look a little skinny on those rims. I run 30x9.50's on my stock 15x7 rims and they look just right i think.

they will work on them, my friend runs them on 15x8's with out a problem, you could fit up to a 12.5" wide tire with out problems and maybe ever wider though then you get into some issues.

Right on!

So pretty much any common width will fit, 9.50, 10.50, 12.50.....good deal. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Right on!

TJ's came from the factory with 30x9.5's on the 8" rims, and we are running 31's on them now. I also run 33x12.5's on the 8" rims on the Scrambler.
