i have a 14 inch wide rim on my car right now. i want to run a 33x10.5w will it work on this rim?
3400lbs, i was told i might have traction issues because the sidewall will be so stretched tight. does that sound right? i was also told they wear out alot quiker when they are mounted on such a widde rim....Jim Monson said:Depends on the weight of the car and how accurate the pressure gauge is. Try 10.5psi and go up/down from there.
thanx jim youve been alot of help! i think i met you before at ubly? i have a 95 teal camaro w/bbcJim Monson said:Most guys (including me) run them on a 14" wide rim. It helps keep the footprint as wide as possible when the tire grows. Some guys use as wide as a 16" rim. Take a look at this pic from top end. This is a 14" rim. I wouldn't want to go any less than 14" wide or the tire tread might get too narrow at speed.
