I wouldn't put a 14.5 on anything less than a 10' rim...a 12" rim would be better.

I don't care what it looks like on the jeep, I'm talking about a 14.5" tire on and 8" rim

If the jeep had wider wheels it would look and probably perform better, even though I doubt it has that much trouble haha

1) theres one advantage, i dont think hes popped a bead yet.. and he runs like 3 psi sometimes.

2) no, he has no problems, except there when he broke his front driveshaft lol

psst. thats the heep i was talking about with the 6.0 and the Toyos that seem to hook up, and go where ever he wants to go...

thats what i was thinking , i just never ran 14.50 on an 8inch rim so it may take me having to put a gun to some ones head to get em mounted, but it will be fun, and i dont own boggers just me and my jeep friends like to swicth up tires
