This sounds like you are asking if an 11.5" wide tire will fit on a 7" wide rim.

I wouldn't try it.

Alright, did some searching in here and it has been done by other members, and they look pretty good, I have the 3" SL, so clearance isn't an issue.
I need tires, came acorss a good deal on some 32" BFGs, so I'm gonna go for it and try them out.

Resurrecting this old thread and want to know if current thinking has changed at all? I would like to run the same set-up and will air down for off-roading, but manufacturer specs call for 8" wide rim minimum for 11.5" wide tire. I'll still be good, right? Thanks.

Your call !!!

Toyo says 8.5" wheel is ideal (7"-9" OK) for 10.5" tire. I would want at least an 8" for 11'5" tire.

It'll work. It'll "balloon" some which will increase overall diameter of the tire

The guys at Tirerack don't recommend going outside tire manufacturer recommendations. I was told that the tire could pop off the wheel if a curb is hit or something to that effect. I assume they have to give an official response like that for liability reasons.

Is there anyone here who has had problems running a tire that is 1 inch wider than the recommended minimum?

You are correct, for liabilty reasons they ha e to suggest against it.

I have been in the tire industry for 12 years. A wider tire on a narrow rim is more difficult to pop off in a situation you described. Going wide wheel with skinny tire like is the new craze is the one that's scary to me.

I currently run a 35 12.50 15 on a 7 inch wide rim.

Thanks for mentioning you are also running a wider tire on a narrower rim. Do you also agree that airing down to, say, 15 to 20 PSI will not pose any problems?

What you are able to air down to depends on alot of factors.

But wider tire on narrow rim should help with that becuase the sidewall of tire will naturally push against the bead.

Under most circumstances I don't think 15psi would be an issue. I ran 10psi on the trail with stock wheels and 265 75s and had 2 blown beads in the course of 2 years but push things harder than alot.of people do

Thanks for your input, offroadohio. Any other last words of wisdom or things for me to consider?
