    My 32x11.5 BFGs are just about dead and I was planning on replacing them with the same size tire but I have gone to a couple tire places and it seems 32s are an odd size and most places don't have them in stock. So I have been thinking about going up to a 33. I have a 15x10 inch rim, would you recommend putting a 33x10.5 on a 10 inch wide rim? Anyone have any pictures of that set up? I don't really want to put on the 33x12.5s because of the extra weight, decreased MPGs and my 32x11.5s alright stick out past my fender flares. Any help is help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks guys

    The 33x10.5 factory spec for rim width is 7-9", so . . . maybe??

    I wouldn't just because I don't like being outside of specs for what is recommended. To be honest, if you're not sliding around sideways or wheeling hard or anything you'll be fine. It will just leave your wheel more susceptible to damage and look like it is bulging a little rather than being tucked in and protected more by the tire. Could you get away with it? yeah. Would I do it, personally? No.

    Thanks for the replies guys, after thinking about it for a while I might just order and stick with the 32's.
