Off subject: Supergildo, your tryin to be funny, but the crap your posting around the boards is getting anoying, and pointless, quit please.

On Subject: garciaedgar , it depends on the width of the tire aswell, not just how tall it is. Im going to see if i can find that chart(I think Redneckstone made)
but for example, if your working with say a 10.5 width, go with an 8 inch wide rim, or say 12.5 inch width, go maybe up to a 10 inch wide rim.

Check your tire manufacturer's website for the recommended rim width range. As an example, here are the BFG numbers for A/T's and M/T's.

33x10.50R15
7~9" width

33x12.50R15
8.5~11"
