8" Rim with 11.50 wide tire??

Is this going to be fine. i have a 15x8 daytona rim and im putting 32x11.50/15 on and thats 3.5 inchces wider than the rim, would i want to run a lower air pressure than suggested to get an even wear out of my tires instead of the middle wearing to quickly bc of how it bulges a bit? thanks

Perfectly fine. Rule of thumb is 4.5 difference.

Yeah man you're good.
Not really relevant, but my dad has a set of 31/16.5-15 M/T Spotsmans on a 10" wide wheel on the back of his F100. It looks ridiculous, he just hasn't gotten around to widening the wheels yet.

awesome guys, i figured an 8 inch wide rim would have less chance of chipping the edges of the wheel since the sidewalls will go out past the edge of the wheel if i hit some rocks or something in the mudd, i do like the wider apperance of a 10 inch wide rim, but itll do. thanks again
