I just ordered a set of 15 inch 32 x 10.50 tires. Dunlop Radial Mud Rovers. And a set of 15 x 8 inch wheels. Is that a good match or should I have gotten the 10 inch rims? I haven't paid anything yet so I can still change my mind on the rims.
You can use either. I like the 8" as it "balloons" the tires a bit and allows some sidewall grab without damaging the rim. It is rumored (though disputed often) a 8" hold aired-down tires on the rim much more than the 10".
8" Width with 10.5 or 11.5 is a good match....you would not have been happy with 10" wheels.....it would have started to look like a low rider......and you stand a much better chance of damaging the rims and getting bead seperation with 10"...
That's a good setup even 7" wide wheels would work. I like narrower wheels, they hold beads better and you usually don't get as much stuff stuck behind the bead. I ran 12.5's on 6's and never had bead issues though that was on a trail only beater.
