I've got a '98 ZJ 5.9 with worn out 235/85R16's on it which should come out to be 32"x9.25" on 16x7" wheels. I'd like to go with a little bit smaller tire to deal with scrubbing in the turns. Most of the 31" tires (tough enough to find locally on a 16") happen to be at least 10" wide. SO my question is: is a 10" wide tire too wide to put on a 16x7" wheel?

I Also agree, I had mastercraft 31X10.5īs mounted on my factory rims until I relaced them with the new 32īs and 15X8 rims
