Default 37-12.5-16 tires on

who knows if you can/should run 37-12.5-16 tires on 16-12 rims? They are beadlockers but I personally think they be to wide. Anybody have a better more educated idea???

12 inch rims are to wide for a 12.5" tire. If I am not mistaken the rim spec on a 12.5" tire is 8-10"

Call Nick, he is a real tire expert and can tell you what should fit. I'll PM his number to you.

My employee runs a 35x12.50 on a 10" rim. I would not go wider unless you want less rim protection. The 12.5's were destined to have 14.50 and 15.50 swampers wrapped around them.

Reading this thread title, I thought for sure it was going to say:

"who knows if you can/should run 37-12.5-16 tires on... a stock 80?"
