ok thats an 8 inch wheel, and yes your centers are wearing more then the outers, and i'm sure the fronts look worse.

you can clearly see the outer lugs are not touching the ground.

i have 90% of the tire touching on my truck. 14.25" wide tire on an 8.5" wheel, running 24 psi on the street.

12.5-7=5.5
14.25-8.5= 5.75

I am sure whatever tire he gets is not really 12.5 wide.

I have seen this done several times and perfect tread wear.

I ran 33x12.50s on my stock 15x7s for quite a few months before I got my 15x8's, I think I ran around 30 psi, never had problems

.....ok too many bs replies here....

1. you CAN run a 12.5 wide tire on a 7" rim, u will need to run the tire at a pressure lower then normal inorder to ensure proper tire wear.

2. most tire manufacturers RECCOMEND the rims to be 3-4" narrower then the rated width of said tires for proper wear at reccomended pressure.

3. running a 12.5 wide tire on anything bigger then a 8" rim will lead to the tire measuring smaller as the sidewalls get stretched out, AND more likely to pop/collect mud and debris in the bead due to the sidewall being stretched out.


and....as forest gump said, thats all i have to say...about that...

This is a good idea. I did this when I bought rubber for my 20's. The recommended tire size for the 20" Boss 304 (9" wide?) is 275/45R20. So, thats what I bought. The tires look great, but I can definitely run a smaller tire if I want to....I might upgrade to a 235/30R20 pretty soon. Riding on rubberbands!

Why don't you wait until you can afford the rims? No need to half *** something.

To the basis of the origional question that was asked:

You will be able to run on a 15x7 just fine until you get your other wheels ordered up.. in essence to what size of rim you get. a 15x10 will push the wheels out roughly 2 inches further then the same wheel but 15x8.. Depending on laws in yoru area, you MAY have to run fender flares if you don't have them already in this situation. Currently, with my own truck in Washington, I run a 15x8 33x12.5, works flawlessly at 32 PSI, gives about an inch sticking out past the fender flares.. but if I was to run a 15x10 I would have to switch out fender flares for osmethign wider due to the laws of the state..

Guaranteed though, not many follow the laws, but I like to play it safe, and 15x8's work just fine for me. And yes, they DO work off road just fine like that, I have never had to air down, but I would rather put a 15x8 on a 12.5 aired down, then a 15x10 on a 12.5 aired down..
