15x10 Ride Height

Probably another stupid question and afterthought, for which I can't seem to find an answer. My 89' is currently sitting on new GY Wrangler MT/R 35x12.5x15R with 15x8 rims. With a level on top of tread & aired up to 35 psi, tires stand exactly 34.5" tall.

I recently ordered some Allied Rockathon Beadlocks in 15x10 with 3.75 backspacing. Can anyone tell me how much shorter, if any, I can expect my tires to stand when mounted on these rims? Also, any photos floating around out there of this size rim on FSB's? Thanks!

That is the exact wheel I bought for my 78 but I'm running 33x12.50x15 BFG KO's so I can't help with ride height but you can see what they look like installed.





BTW no local tire shops would mount and balance them for me. I ended up using dynabeads and mounted them myself. It worked well.

Bronco Info: Stock '94 Bronco except for 33" BFGs.
The short answer: Not enough difference for you to care.

The long answer: Maybe .5"+/- shorter due to spreading the tire out; Maybe.

Are your Goodyears 'D' or 'E' rated tires? Or rather; What's the max inflation for said tires? 35PSI sounds like max PSI unless it's rated for 45PSI.


FWIW; I inflate my tires so that there's an even footprint across the entire tread. I don't go by PSI because the tires I use are rated for a full size truck with a max load heavier than what I can carry.

Thanks. Look good. Fortunately I have a shop nearby which will actually do it all for me.

Thx CDA. I do likewise on the pressure. They're rated C for load range with 35 psi max. I aired one all the way up just to measure height.

I got pics of 15x10's but like RAMPNT, there only on 33's.
I'd post pics of my '95... but I'm honestly not sure if they're 8 or 10 wide, as PO set it up.

Here's mine with 35 x 12.50 r15 on 10" wide rims. I also run 1.25" wheel spacers to get the tires out to the edge of the fender flares.

I ran 37" and 35" tires on 15x10s on a 6" and 4" lift respectively. Can't remember the back space.

35s and 4"




35s and 6"


And finally the 37s and 6" lift


I went to 16x10" wheels on my 85, so I could get some 10 ply swampers. I kept wearing the 6 plys out too fast.

Just curious Blue...Are you running the 44 TTB with those 37"s?

I was on that Bronco, with 300+HP and 450+ft/lbs and 4.88 gears.

My 85 is running 37s now on the ttb, with 200hp and 400 ft/lbs (inline six) and 4.56 gears with a trutrac Detroit in the front and a Detroit locker in the rear.

I don't "wheel" my broncos, but ol blue had been jumped numerous times, at highway speeds, without a problem. I've had them in holes, ditches, creeks, and any other environment on the way to fishing, camping, or hunting and trapping. Never had a problem with the axles.
