Default M/T 275/60/15 rim size?

M/T Radial tire, Spec say 8" rim. How big of a deal is it to run on a 10" rim? And what is a good starting psi?

How much taller? Clearance is tight on mine.

I have mine on 8s but is it better to have them on 10s?

Lots of folks run great on 10's. Wouldn't go any bigger unless you're a glutton for punishment - mounting a 275 on a 12" rim ain't no walk in the park.
