Exclamation will this work?

i just got my 39x13.5x16.5d iroks in but my 16.5x12 rims are still backordered, is it safe to run these tires on 16.5x9.75s for a few weekends till the new ones come in? Thanks

Ryan

I don't see why that wouldn't work. It will just suck the sidewalls in.

That seems fine, many many people run 12.50 wide tires on 8" wide rims. Yours will probably look better on the 9.75" rims anyways.

hold the bead better? im pretty new to wheeling, but i always thought it was the opposite, like wide wheels for wide tires. idk. should i cancel the new rims while i still can and save the money? btw these arent bead locks

on thing to consider. running big tires like that on narrow rims and then trying to get them to seat on the wider rims could be entertaining. anybody whos ever stored some 12.5" tires on their sides and then tried to seat them on 10" wheels can attest to this...
