      What was the answer? I like to mount tires on like size wheels as the tread width. Deviating more than an inch either way can affect how the tire performs....but it seems today's tires can handle more deviation. No pun intended. :D Still don't like installing a tire on a rim that's more than 1" narrower than the tread width.

      A tread width of 9.6+ inches on a 7" rim. Sure, it'll work but it's not optimum. Just watch your inflation or you'll wear out the centers if there's too much. Pretty sure you won't even get close to using max inflation with that combo.....

      When going wide I measure unmounted bead width. If the rim is not at least that wide don't do it.
