Yes you can run it, it will rub slightly on the stabilizer bar up front and thats it. As far as wear, there will be some issues in the center section of the tire becuase of the wheel width.

yes, but if it were me i would have gotton 15x10 rims....

You will regret it 20k miles down the road...

They dont wear horrible, but likeothers have said with 15x10 rims it makes a better footprint on the ground....where as with 15x8's or stockers there is a 1/2inch on each side of the tread that doesnt touch the ground..

Its worth the money to just get rims now.... And dont get steel because they are a b!tch to balance

the pictures that you posted look the same as mine, they look like the outsides of the tires dont touch....

Like zach said, either you are running 25PSI in your tires or you have 15x10 rims.....

12.5 inch wide tire....minus a 8inch wide wheel equals the tire bowing up in the middle which doesnt let the outsides touch the ground...

Like i said if i wanted new rims i would get 15x10, i know your trying to save money by using your alocas but its not worth it...

id take my loss with the 1/2 of the tire thats not touching the ground cause the new stock alcoas are just plain awsome looking, i dont think it really matters what color new rims you get cause either will look really good, if that the route you choose.....

^ I read your post 10 times and still dont understand it....


If you were to get 15x10 rims, i think your truck would look sweet with black rims with the black side out on the tire (im one for having the white letters out, but yours would look better with the black out)
