    Default 15x8J vs 15x10J

    Currently I am running the stock wheels on 31x11.5x8J. I want to get a set of 15x10J rims. Anything that I should be concerned about

    My experience says that putting a similar sized tyre on a wider rims will decrease the overall height due to the stretching of the tyre.

    Obviously a much larger diam tyre can be fitted on a wider rim. 15' tyres will unfortunately only go so big.

    (I might have it wrong)

    Good explain....

    On my Hardbody I run 33x12.5 on 8J x 15 rims. Although I'm on HT tyres, a respected forum member tells me the combination helps against debeading. I hope he is correct, as I want to go 35s as soon as I can afford them, and I will stay with 8J till I prove to myself it's a problem.

    You would not say there is a 2,1/4" over hang on that rubber per side. It does however give you a somewhat "floppy" ride with the amount of sidewall movement.



    My biggest problem is matching these rims as I dont have a spare/s.
