That tire is 10.5" wide, so it'll fit fine on a 10" wide rim.

If it's a 31x10.50, it's considered 10.5" wide, regardless of what the tread measures. It'll be fine.

Did you get some new tires/wheels? Thought I heard you say at Scott's that you'd sold yours and your new ones weren't in yet. Let's see some pics!!

Not ideal as it will kind of balloon out near the lip, but it will work.

I am in the same boat. I have 9" rims, and I am going to run 31x10.50 tires...I hope it is what I expect.

I have been trying to find Yokohama 31x10.50 Super Digger III tires, but evidently they are impossible to find. I want that rounded profile, but BFGs are a high quality tire I can trust.

my $.02, a 10" rim will make that tire look fat. If thats the look you want you're fine. I would get an 8" so when I have low air pressure there is far less chance of popping the bead. We can get away with wide tires and high air pressure more than the 4 x 4 guys because our rides are lighter, but 10" rims are more expensive, harder to come by and you will always need wide tires.
Ditch, I also would like a rounded tire, I'll be watching to see what you find. For the most part I just run used light truck tires. 235/75 R15. I think 31's are too much torque on a stock swingaxle transaxle. Wide tires are too heavy IMO also.

My 2 cents:
I'm running 31s on the stock tranny and it can push them with BARELY any bog between gears. Sure, it guzzles gas,and I may point out that I have a 1641cc but still. Any bigger though.. i dunno... Plus then you're losing valuable clearance
