33x10.5 on 15x10 wheel?

I want to run a set of bfg 33x10.5 tires on my 15x10 rims. Im well aware its not recommended, and not common, but are there any saftey issues? I will not be airing them down at all, I have a seperate set for that. I found a good deal on a set of these tires and want to pick them up. If you have run 10.5's on 10" wheels let me know. Everyone says the bead will pop too easy, but I cant imagine it poping unless there is something else going on. Looking for someone with experiance. Anyone running this setup? Got pics?

o you got a good deal on em... well for 10.5" wide tire, you wanna generally go with 8" wide rim or less... however my friend had this setup, only drove it on the street and never had a problem...

You wont have any problems. Ive seen people mount 11.50 on a 12 wide and not have any blow outs and 12.50 on a 14 wide.

not only will it look REALLY dumb, but the tire manufacture DOES NOT recommend running a 10.5" wide tire on a 10" wheel....8" wheels are the biggest any tire manufacture recommends running on a 10.5" wide tire.....

do what you want, but you will have a lot of wear on the outside and inside of the tire with hardly any on the middle of the tire because the middle will be drawn down from the too wide wheel...
