I sure hope that you had a typo in there somewhere becaise if you are running 11.5 inch wide tires on a 14 inch wide wheel then you have no clue what you are doing!

I would definitely want wider tires on those wheels, but it doesn't look as bad as I thought it would.

so can you explain the reasoning of putting a 11.5 inch wide tire on a 14 inch rim?

I cant see any offroading gain out of it, yeah it fits, but why not put a wider tire or get a slimmer rim?

We know that it CAN be done but use some common sense here,if all you wanting to run is 11.5 tire WHY do you need a 14in wide wheel? For one its very unsafe and people buy those wider wheels to run 17in wide tires,not 11.5. A 15x8 or 15x10 is perfect for a 11.5 wide tire.
