Had a pair of 28 x 11 Goodyears mounted on 8'' rims, section width was 11.870. Mounted one on a 10'' rim thinking they would actually have less section, wrong again, 12.4, I was surprised. Turned out not to be a problem, had ordered a custom set of wheels and was contemplating hari kari if everything didn't clear, but it's ok.

In my experiences the GY are the narrowest then Hoosier then M/T which are the widest. I run 16X33 Hoosiers with no problems but I got a set of M/T 16.5X33 and while they were slightly wider at the tread area the middle was a bunch wider and would rub the tubs slightly at times. Nothing serious but a rub is never good. The Good Years have lots of room. I have been told this is true with all sizes. RM

Several years ago I went from a 28x10.5 M/T that fit ok, to a 29x10 Hoosier, Undriveable! Rubbed everywhere. Could barely get it in the fender opening.

Rule of thumb from the tire manufacturers is 2" varience. 10" tire, smallest wheel is a 8". etc. Dave
