View Full Version : 12.5" Tire on a 10" rim?

08-08-2006, 05:15 PM
I have T.O's old 10" rims that I got off of Big Sperm. Will they be alright with a 12.5" SuperSwamper on them? Should I do what Aaron said and run a small bead of urethane on the inside bead? I know if it rips it will fuck the tire up pretty bad. What do you all think? [cheers]

i have 10" wide rims and 12.5 tires and have yet to blow a bead on my cherokee i think it will be just fine

if im not mistaking that is the best rim size for 12.5's anyhow

I have just about always run my BFGs on 10 in rims never had to much of a problem with blowin beeds the swampers should have better sidewalls and better beed lips than the BFGs I wouldn't put any urathane on those tires and I think Perm's problem with beeds is lack of air pressure.

10" is perfect fit. Use uerothane only if you have leaking problems, not bead off problemo. If you continue to have bead offs, buy some bead locks.

urethane works pretty well for holding the tire on at low pressures.
but I agree with 10" being the right size.
just need to watch your tire pressure when on pavement (may need to be a little higher to prevent the tire from doing \_/\_/ instead of \____/ (inside raising up resulting in wear of outside of tread)

no go with a 6 inch wide rim then you never have to worry about loosing a bead[f] [f] [f] [f] [15] [15] [15] [15] [15] [15] [15] [15] [15] [15]
