Will these fit on stock rims

I bought my 33x12.50r15 and I was wondering now if they will even fit on my stock 1995 ford ranger tear drop rims?

No!! They will not fit, you must go to an 8" wide wheel...

EDIT: Ok, you shouldn't mount them on a 7" wide wheel...

haha yes they will mount on the rim.. and yes it will hold a bead.. BUT it will not properly wear on the outer edges and will wear more in the center...

they will mount fine, and some people get good even wear as well, but chances of that are slim to none.

the stock ranger teardrops are 16'', so a 33x12.50r15 WILL NOT fit.

there is 2 tear drop styles... one is 15" one is 16" the most common is the 16 tho... assuming.. there still the 15 it will i would hope he wouldn't try and mount a 15" tire on a 16" wheel... that would be funny...

15" wheel




16" wheel

Well I have the 15's so thats why i figured they would work but i just wasn't sure if 7 in wide tires would just be to small so I'm buying some 15x8's
