Re: 30\'s on stock rims?

I know a fellow who is running 31x10.50 BFG MTs on the stock rims. The only problem he has had is with a bit of rubbing on the front springs and maybe a little on the inside rear wheel well. That would be at full lock in the front and full flex in the rear. I don't think you would have a problem at all. 15x7s would be ideal, but if you don't have the coin.........

Re: 30\'s on stock rims?

They'll work. I have 31x10.50" on stock rims on my Zukfari trailer. A buddy runs the same size on his rig, although he did lose a bead on the trail. He too gets some rubbing now and then.

My suggestion, you can do it in the interim until the "tree" ou back starts to grow some "green". Then think of going for the wider rims. Don't forget backspacing.

I have 30.0 x 9.50 on stock wagon wheels, running 12 psi. Started at 30 psi gradually lowered to 12 psi where all the rubber contacts the ground. No problems with losing bead, ride is good...

I run 31x10.5 on stock rims with my sammy. All I did was flip my rims around. I only have a bit of rubbing on my front fenders at full flex.

I have my spare in stock Rim (that's a 32.5)
Had no problem with it, exept for the rubbbing factor..

Re: 30\'s on stock rims?

When you flipped your rim around was there any problem in clearance on the calipers or drums?

DON'T FLIP THE RIMS!!!!!! That is very dangerious if you are driving street or hwy. They will fit but you can also go to a auto salavage yard and get wider stock Ford half ton rims for next to nothing. Just don't flip the damn rims.
