New ss212 15" rims

Recommended Posts

I was looking to upgrade my worn out tires and finally settled for the new ITP SS212 15" rims with BF Goodrich LT235/75R15 AT tires. The 29" diameter tire seemed a good compromise between the smaller 27" and the larger 30" tires leaving me a little more room for wheel travel. Since I have a T-4 model I was concerned with the weight carrying capacity of both the tire and rim. Each of the new ITP rims has a 1000lb rating with the load carrying capacity of the tire well over that. With an occasional load of overweight 50 year olds, myself included, you've got to be careful.

When aired down they just envelope and roll over rocks instead of bouncing over them. In deep sandy or gravel the tire gets on top of the material instead of plowing thru it like the originals. There is hardly any rock throwback into the cab and the best part is if I want to take a short cut home at the end of the day, I just put it up on the road and it runs smoooth on the asphalt.

This has turned out to be a sweet setup for the Arizona desert where I ride and I would highly recommend it.

ROCMOC,

Do your 31X10.50X15 rub at all? What wheels are you running and with what back spacing?

i think the offset is 5x2.Him and Lenny both run the 31's and yes they had to do some mods so they wouldnt rub.

Lenny cut the firewall and weld a new wall. I used a BIG HAMMER! No rub, LOL! You really don't have to cut or beat that much to get enough clearance. I will find the link to the post with all my wheel info.

Rocmoc is right, you don't need much. I did it the way I did because I run 33x12-15 paddles tires on the front. The way I did it, they don't rub either. With 14.5" of travel and the paddles, my fenders had to be a lot higher. I run 33x16 paddles on the rear. Who knows, it might even float with the paddles on.

      Hi All,
      Have a stock 2017 Stampede 4 door XTR.  Looking for a spare tire, such as a front stock setup.  Quoted from the dealer at $366.00.  For a thousand bucks I can get a whole after market setup of 4 and use my original front for a spare.   My stockies are 27x9r14 and 27x11r14's.  I was thinking of going to 29's.  Does anyone know if they will fit with no rub?  All the dealers don't know.  If anyone has an extra front wheel/tire they want to get rid of ?
      TIA
      Hubba

      I installed the 2019 exhaust upgrade yesterday.  Overall went very well, but my rear driveshaft / u_joints are extremely hot.   Is there some sort of heat shield that should be added.  TIA for any input
