I've been thinking lately about buying a set of Wheels and Tires just for offroading. I currently have All-terrain tires and well, they just don't cut it sometimes. There have been a couple situations where, if I had a set of mud-terrain tires I'd be out of a sticky situation, no problem.
So I started looking at cool tires, some for looks, etc. Then I got a magazine with a tire guide. So after reading it, I started looking around at a set of tires for off-roading. Naturally I couldn't stay away from the low-priced SS LTBs. I've been reding up on them for the past few days, and the only thin bad about the is that they aren't for street driving mainly because they are bias-ply.
So, now that I've picked a not-so-expensive offroading tire, I need a new not-so-expensive wheel. Well, I bought my current wheels from Summit and some other things, so I'll be another return customer. They have cheapo wagon wheels and Soft8s and Rock Crawler-styles...
OOOOh, a beadlock wheel for 120 bucks. Not bad. way more than 40 bucks, but hey it's a beadlock. I can run them at really low pressures with beadlocks and get the most out of them while offroading.
NOW, the question is---> Can I mount a 31x1150R15 tire on a 15x7 beadlock wheel ($90) or should I go with a 15x8 wheel ($120)??? I'm trying to keep the price low, so that's why I'm wondering about the 15x7 wheels.
