Icon5 Will the tires I have now fit on my new rims?

I just ordered some 15x10 Mickey Thompson Sidebiter rims! But, I am going to have to wait to order my bigger tires until I can save some more money up. Can my current tires, BFG A/Ts 31x10.5R15, fit ok on these rims? Sorry if this is a ridiculous question. I learned what backspacing and offset were, but I don't know the answer to this one! Thanks guys.

Not positive but you shouldnt have any problems. Might be a little hard to seat the bead but you should good. Ive seen really thin tread width on a really wide rim.. Very popular style on VWs

i have a p235 on a 15x8. Like btm757 it was hard to seat the bead though. kinda not what your asking but if your thinking your tire might be to small for your rim i think you will be good.

just wait to put them on. why mount, bal, everything twice. then you will have 2 sets, 1 for winter and the nice ones for summer.

I personally wouldnt run a 32x10.50 on a 10" wheel but i know people who do it. Makes the tire look bubbly and kind of stupid really

The maximum rim width BFG recommends is 9" for a 31x10.50.

their fit ive run em before no problems.. the only thing is with the wide wheel it pulls the tire out more. and the middle wears out of the tire faster..
