    Default Which rims for 60? Two options.

    I want to purchase new rims and today had a round of the market. Selected two sets. Pls advise as which one would you recommend. Remember, i have to buy new tyres as well so they can be according to the new rims. Pls also recommend tyre size for both the sets.

    1. 15" dia. 8" wide. The rims are 3.8" hollow from inside.
    2. 15" dia. 10" wide. The rims are 3.8" hollow from inside.

    Remember, i dont want to be uncomfortable.

    15" dia. 10" wide. The rims are 3.8" hollow from inside.
    i would suggest this because 8" is not that wide i guess 8" will not even let a 205 size tire spread fully

    If i put 265/ 275 or 31X10.5 tyres, would they not be over stretched and become hard?

    It all depends on the tire you will use on it. It is a wrong belief, as I am just getting to know now, that the rim width should be the same as the tire width. A search on the net and I found the following info..

    "The wheel width or rim width is the distance between the outside edges of the bead seat. Most popular rim width for 4x4s would be 6", 7", 7.5", 8" and 10". Rims wider than this are usually only used on trucks with extreme overwidth tires. The tire manufacturer will publish guidelines for what rim width should be used with which tire. In general 7" rims will comfortably work with tires up to 10.5" wide, 8" wide rims work for 9.5" up to 12.5" wide tires and 10" wide rims are used for 12.5" and wider. Many rims will not be available in width wider than 8" and rims wider than 10" are much more difficult to find."
    Thanks
    Ehsan

    Do you really need 10" wide rims? Are you into hardcore offroading?
    If you'd ask me, I'd say you opt for 8" wide rims. You can fit 265/275/285 on them. Plus these wont strain out your suspension. If you have aftermarket shocks then that is another story.

    By the way how good the alloy rims being made at thailand are? Any idea? Would their quality and strength match the japanese one's? And i will be using my jeep 50% on long drives and 50% off the road (no professional offroading). Now what do u say? 8" or 10"?

    I wouldn't suggest thai rims as they are prone to crack/deshape easily, once offroad you never know how much weight each rim supports. Sometimes all the weight is on one rim and that is when things go wrong with those rims.

    My advice get used/new 8" OEM rims, even if they're from another car make, in the size you want. But make sure the PCD is EXACTLY same as on your ride.

    The important measurement is the "pitch circle diameter" (PCD), usually expressed in millimeters, although inches are sometimes used. For a 4- or 6-bolt car, this measurement is merely the distance between the center of two diametrically opposite bolts
