    20 inch wheel :slap:


    When tires get too big like 40 inches and bigger you have too much sidewall when you run normal wheels like 15s and it becomes unstable since the sidewall gets wobbly. So for say 53 inch tires they make them for 20 inch wheels and don't offer them for 15 inch wheels

    here is a 38 inch tire with a 15 inch wheel next to a 53 (I think) with an opening for a 20 inch wheel. Notice how the sidewall heights aren't all that different considering the differance in overall size.

    I know a couple of people running over 40" tires on 16" wheels. No problems with sidewall flex.

    maybe if you don't rockcrawl or compete. I run 40s on 17s and its still not great. If you look at competition rigs most are running 37 inch tires with 17 inch wheels.
