32x11.5 tires on stock 15" rims?
I'm a Journeyman lurker/newbie poster on the board and have a question but first want to say thanks to everyone who takes the time to post here. Ton's of valuable info & often entertaining.
I've got some some Deavers & Donahoes on the way for my 2000 ext. cab TRD 5spd V6 w/ the stock 15" wheels and was looking at maybe upgrading to some 32" tires. That was, until I noticed that every brand I looked at listed a rim width range of 8-10" I'm pretty sure that the stock rims are only a 7" width (?) but I see that other people on the board use the two together. What's the story? Is it something the mfg'er technically doesn't recomend but really isn't an issue, or are there some problems associated with the tire being so much wider than the rim? If it's not really good for the tire and effects the lifespan, I probably wouldn't do it. However, I gotta replace the stock tires soon and don't want to get new 31's & find out I can't stand the look of them w/ the lift. I'm planning on leaving the Donahoes at 2" of lift to keep the ass-end from being too high.
Thanks for any info.
