That rim's a bit wide. I'd be looking at something in the 7" range so you have some wheel protection.

It will work, but puts the tire and bead in harms way......

like it would have too much sidewall hanging out? the theoretical tire being wider than the rim?

i just imagine that if the rim is narrower than the tire, you have a big foot print with the sidewalls protected, rather than having the tire narrower than the rim, sidewalls exposed and possibly the bead coming off the rim, trying to suck in...

The tire protects the rim and bead when a narrower rim is used.

that's what i thought, a narrower tire can't be good on a wider rim.

so perrib, a 31x10.5x15 would work good on a 9.5 inch wide rim?

If you go to BF Goodrich's website it list the rim widths for a 31x10.5x15 as 7-9 inches. 9.5 may be pushing it a bit.

I worked in a tire shop for quite some time and depending on how diligent they are they may not mount them on 9.5 rims. In all honesty they probably won't catch it though.

Like Fast One states the rim is too wide.

From one of my Bajas. The tire protects the rim. 33x12.50 on 8 " rims and 7.00 15 on stock rims.




Note the lack of damge to the rims.

They are nice but my first choise is All Terrains since they slip more and transfer less shock to the drivetrain.

My rears are 4 lug and front 5 lug. One of these days I'll get around to installing the adapters to go 5 lug in the rear.
