Rim and Tire question

I have 15x7" rims, with i think about a 4" back spacing i forget if its 3 3/4 or 4 even, what would it take to get 29 x 10.5" tires to fit, or isn't it possible, I know that i can get 1 1/4" spacers, but will that be enough? Or should i just get 29 x 8.5" but those seem too narrow.

Thank you [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Re: Rim and Tire question


first, take a look at this site for detailed information on wheel backspacing:
tire info

(thanks,DannyL and 87zuke!)

From that site, you'll discover that more backspacing is bad, less backspacing is good.

With 29s, the stuffing cuts from offroading won't be as bad as 31's but they will be there. The width may also attract the attention of the police as they would stick out far on, say 2" backspaced wheels.

Why do you want to go with such a low-profile tire? I am not sure that such a tire/wheel arangement would be very good offroad...

any comments from the rest of you on this idea?

Re: Rim and Tire question

Its not that low profile it will roughly be the same as a 235 75 15 as they are both pretty much 29" tires which would be about a 6 or 7 inch sidewall height?

I don't see how it would be that bad. [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
