That's a nice deep rim. those are 10" Wheels with 31's? How wide are the tires? They look nice and fat on there.

Very nice looking. But 10" wide rims is too wide on 10.5" wide tires. Increases the chances of the tire coming off the rim while deflated. I've also got American Racing, but they're 8" wide with 12.5" wide tires. Here's a pic.

Question, on what is that hi-lift jack mounted in the rear? Is it a tire carrier or on the door itself?

i built a support on the inside of the tailgate and drilled it out and used one of the highlift brackets to attach it to the tailgate, but youve gotta make sure to re-enforce the inside of the tailgate or it will rip right off

and as for the tire coming off the rim, we dont have much sand where im at, lots of rock so i usually run at least 25lbs of air in em, like this soil is about as loose as it gets around here, i was streching before the lift

I usually run from 4 to 8 psi when in the rocks...
I have never lost a bead, but I am also running 8" rims and 12.5" tires.

with the 10.50 tire, he's got a 8.5 inch tread width. so the sidewall is stretched about 2 inches. That gives him the same contact patch as a 12.50 tire but a much shorter sidewall. This helps out with the no-rubbing situation, since his tire comes in at closer to a 30" tire. On the down side, like you guys pointed out, he has to keep his tires aired up or he'll pop a bead. Rock crawling is best done with aired down tires, but driving on rocky terrain (not crawling over bolders) is best done with with air in your tires. So depending on how he drives in the rocks makes a big difference. With the tires wraped on the rim so snug you are using some of your sidwall as a contact patch when off roading. you need to be sure you have a strong "thick ply" sidewall to help prevent punctures.
