How wide can I go ?

Say I want to get 15.8 rims with 31'x10.5 inch tires...


I know 31's will rub just a little bit on harder turns, but with that width is it going to look goofy or rub the inside ?


Anyone have any pictures of a 3rd on 31's ? stock hieght.

With aftermarket 15x8 wheels you will be fine. 10.50 is skinny.

Are you 4x4 or 2wd? You should make a signature, that'd help us out.

Sounds good, I'd go with a polished wheel instead of a rock crawler...

It would look alot better.
