Wheel Question, Max Size Tire on Steel Soft 8s
Hello, haven't posted much on this forum but I try to look for answers before I post questions.
Unfortunately I couldn't find an answer to this.
I have 2013 JKU Sport, 2.5" RE Lift and 1" Body Lift and am currently running 35" Fierce Attitude Tires on 17x8 soft 8s(no name brand wheel, eBay). On the inner part of the wheel where it lists max weight and all that good stuff it states "Do Not Mount A Tire Larger Than 35".
Not sure if anybody can answer this buy why can't I? Are steel wheels not safe for larger than 35" tires or is a tire over 35" just too much for the wheel? I was really planning on 37" tires in the future and hate to be spending money on wheels, guess my question is is it safe to run 37" tires on these rims?
Thank you in advance and sorry the noob question.
