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?

They'll fit but the tire will be sucked in pretty bad at the junction of sidewall and rim.

So it probably would be unsafe?

I had 32x10.5x15 on 8 inch rims and never had a problem!

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.

I think I'll just use the 8's then.
