    Stuck on what i should order. I want to fit a 33x 12.5 on there.

    What is the main difference between the size.. Everyone tells me 15's and then i hear no 16's . Is it all personal prefrance

    its personal preference. But If you want a 33X12.5 a 15'' rim may be the best. Most 33'' tires are for a 15'' rim.

    And go 15X8.

    First decide what diameter rim you want (15 or 16). Then, check the tire manufacturers website to see what rim width (8 or 10) that size tire is approved for.

    I bought 16's, but personally if I could go back I would have bought 15's. I like the tire sizes better that come in 15"

    nothing, all stock expect got a OE replacement air filter K&N.
    im also in the market of shopping for a new set of wheels. i'm thinking of getting 15x8's or 15x10s. i like 15x10s, gives a good stance. but tires are expensive and harder to find.

    just curious, what is the downfall of a 15x10 whide wheel, just wondering why people choose 15x8. I want that wider look. Will the rim just look thicker. The wheels i want have a dish so i feel a 15x10 would look better for that reason

    15x8s for sure...also, tires seem to be a little cheaper in standard sizes (31, 32, 33)


    wish I could run 15s :pout:
