Question about tires and wheels

I have these nice chrome 8 inch wheels and I want to buy some super swampers to put on them. The only problem is the swampers are 33x12.50-15. I suppose there is no way these tires would fit on the wheels is there?

Hey all
I just put a set of 33x12.5 Wildcat EXT's, mounted on a set of 15x8 Rally wheels on my 78 K5.
The tires fit nice on the wheels and I didn't need a lift either.

See ya
 
if you just use the 8's the tire is alot more likely to pull a bead if you are off roading very much because of the stiff sidewall and the rim is so much narrower than the tire. then im just a punk kid too.

Hey there
I have never lost a tire yet and I air down to 10 psi in the sand and to 20 in the woods. I run em at 35 on the street and they are wearing fine.

bummerkit,
A 8" rim will be less likely to loose a bead than a 10" rim. 8" rims have a bead lip on the front inside edge and a 10" doesn't.

10 inch wide rims have those too, so long as they are 15 or 16 inch diameter. 16.5 inch rims are lacking this lip. I've had a set of 10's with the lip. It is diameter specific.
