    How bad is it really to have 15x7 rims on 12.5'' wide tires??

    I'm pretty sure I ran my 33x12.50's on my stock 2nd gen 4Runner rims (pretty sure they are 15x7) and they were fine.

    I will check to be sure though.

    I had stock toyota wheels on 315/75/16 MTZ on my 3rd gen 4runner. No premature or unusual tread wear. You will be just fine.

    Just leave the air pressure down a little in them so they wear evenly. They'll be fine. I've ran 33's and 35's on a F350 4x4 with a stock 16x7 wheel with no problems (towing 12k).

    It will all depend on your exact truck.

    Do the chalk test as soon as they are mounted up, write that number down, and you're set. :thumbsup:
