I'm thinking of selling my 14.5x38.5x15 Sxs ,on steel 10x15, 8-lugs and getting some 38x13x16 TSLs on either 16x8, or 16x10 aluminum 8-lug 589s,(see question below), reason is due to a Dana 44 up front, (possible a little less weight will = longer axle life?) ,and my Toyota 3.0 V-6,, is now like a worn out carbed 4 cyl in the power dept.!!, and I think I will loose some weight with the alum rims/narrower tires,, not to mention possibly a better balanced tire,(daily driver,for now),, my question is;I know the 16" wheel also has a safety bead,and I dont think they make a 15" 8-lug alum. wheel?,.. will a 8" wide wheel hold the bead better with the 13" wide tire at low pressue than a 10" wide will ?..
I had 14.5 SSRs on 10"wide 589s and never lost a bead at 8psi,, but I have never owned a narrower wheel,,,,,,,,, Thanks in advance!!

Well I have 36 12.5s and I pop beads all the time with 15x10s. I have looked into the 16in option and I would say 16x8s. The 13in tire has a narrower section width than the 36 12.5 I believe so the narrower wheel should hold it. Bead locks work even better but I just cant find a money tree anywhere so I just run them at 10 to 12 psi.

The R is there - is stands for "RIM" <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0">
I was using it to differentiate which one is the rim width.

As far as the size - just checked their web site ans sure enough - that size is there but only in 16" rim <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

Anybody have a pic of one, or the actual specs???

Ahh,, o.k.. I thought you might have been referring to the tire being a "R"adial,my mistake,, In the Swamper web site,, they mention a 10x16 recommended rim width,for the 13" wide tire?,, but they also recommend a 15x12 wheel width for a 16x35x15 Bogger,? I would think a 8" wide wheel would work though (for the 13" wide tire)

if You are Looking at a Balancing and a Bead Staying rim hand's Down go the 8 Inch Wheel

I have Personally never seen the 13 inch wide TSL's But have seen alot Of 12.50 on 8 Inch wheel's And It Has No Problems On the Bead issue !!!! And You say the tread Width is Narrower on the 13inch wide tire Go to Four Wheel parts And see if they Will mount One For you??? on A 8 Inch Wide Wheel! Worst thing they Would Say Is NO!
You can try?? EH!!

My .02 cent's

DRM, it's the 16" version of the 38X12.50. Like the 15" version, this tire was originally stamped 37X13 right up until the day the 36X12.50 came out. Not sure why they kept the 13" stamping on the 16" version instead of 12.50, but it has the same overall dimensions as the 15" version - meaning true diameter of 36-36.5".
