33x13.5 on a 15x7 rim?

So i want to put a 33x13.5x15 swamper LTB on a 15x7 for TRAIL use only. Can it be done? The idea is that they will almost act as beadlocks because of the difference between tread width and rim width.

Try it w/ a 12.5 wide...your contact patch will be small on a 7'' rim.

For trail use only, it will work but will require lower pressure than you would need with a slightly wider rim to get the same traction. Definatly not for any road use. before trying the super skinny rim approach, I'd try Inchworms rim screw beadlocks.

I agree with Pat98TJ, or maybe I just don't understand what your trying to accomplish.
