Basically the title gets the point across. what's the widest tire I can put on these rims? I'm looking @ 37 x 12.5 MT/R's...

I have the same tire on a 15x8, couldn't pop a bead jumping on them @ 10 psi (I know that's not an accurate test but hey what else do you do when the truck doesn't run).

They'll fit and probably work but it would be better to get an 8 inch rim.

You can get american racing black steelies for nice and cheap, 15x8 and whatever backspacing you want. I'd go for that, just because it would be ideal.

Yes, but how cheap is 'nice and cheap?' If I do end up buying new wheels, what should I look for?

Sax, NSOR will give them to you for about 61 each and I think Tom the Tire guy can even beat that.

So if money's tight, what I would be able to do is Buy the 37 x 12.5's, mount them on the wheels i have now, and then buy the NEW wheels later and swap 'em?
