Icon14 TIRE SALE! Need Assistance...

there is a big tire sale going on at a local shop and I could really use some new ones, how wide can you go on a stock 15" wheel? I want 32's but don't want to cram them on a narrow rim if its going to make them wear fast.. what do you guys think?? should I go with a more narrow 31"? I searched the posts but couldn't find anything listed about a stock 15" wheel.

you can fit a 32x11.5x15 on a 15x8 rim...if im not mistaken stock rims are 15x7, i wouldnt go any larger then a 11.5 tire on a 15x7.

It may be that 31's would look better...some tire expert im sure will chime in

You'll be fine with the 11.5 on 15x7.

Yea the MTR's are some of the best mud tires you can get quality wise.

To answer your pm I can help you find out tomorrow what gears you have.

The MT/Rs are really a great overall tire, mud, snow, rocks, dirt anything.

ive got 33x12.5 on 15x8's, so you can do 32x11.5 on 15x7's or 16x7's.. whatever your stock rim is.
