Help Quick!!!

just ordered bfg all terrains in 15x10.5-15, for my stock 15 inch edge hweels on my 04 2wd reg cab, guy said I may have a problem with them busting off the rim because theyre too wide for a 7" wide wheel. I see lots of people on here with the same set up do i have anything to worry about. need to know fast so I can cancel my order...

No, you'll b fine assuming you meant a 31x10.5 tire. Mine came stock like that on a 7" wide rim. It will look good too.

yup your totally fine, just as bfg stated, a 7-9" rim will work with 31s, and since our rims are 7" wide your cool. My friend has a dakota with 6" wide rims, and doesn't have a problem with his 31's

31 is how tall the tire is, doesn't matter how wide the rim is for that. A 10.50" wide tire will fit on a 7" wide rim.

Should be ok....Nothing more than a 11.5 on a 7" wheel.

Go to BFG's web site, they have the recommended wheel widths under the tire specs... 11.50" and wider tires are not supposed to go on a 7" wheel by the manufacture specs. However, that said, I've seen some pretty bad mis-matches work pretty well on and off road, and I wouldn't hesitate to put 11.5" tires on a 7" wheel, 12.5" would be pushing it though.
