    14 inch rim

    Strickly a guess, but I would not do it. It may even be hard getting them to bead up on that big of a rim after mounting ?
    I have put 10.5 tires on 8 inch rally wheels and ten inch rims.
    No scientific info on it, just my opinion
    Good Luck

    First; why not use the proper sized wheel ?

    Second; is too wide a wheel will 'cup' the tread so that only the outside edges actually do the work. The opposite is true for too narrow a wheel, the CENTER of the tread does all the work. You'll not be getting the FULL contact patch that would be the most effective AND uneven / premature wear.

    Also, too wide a wheel (without bead locks) you have a greater chance of sidewall collapse under launch and wall contact after collapse.

    Tires are the greatest cause of wrecks in racing. They are the 'weak link', and you want that link the strongest possible.

    We (I) have done it years with 33x10.5w tires in outlaw racing. Purpose of this to flatten out the foot print of the tire to get more tire to the ground (foot print wise). I also run double beadlocks. No sealing issues. Do not know about 29.5s. So rather say somthing that could get you hurt or killed. I say call some 10.5 pros such as steve kirk,tim lynch etc.. Guys like this are easy to get in touch with a can tell you for sure with experience behind it. jmo

    being able to go home after a few passes is even better... why tempt death any more then we already do..... sell the 10.5's and run the right tire for the rim :wink:

    doesn't matter how your car was built. my 10.5 Outlaw car can hold up to a 15 inch wide wheel also because of back space that was built inward on the car.

    your question was concerning will a 29.5(w) tire work on a 14 inch wheel.

    Now I have read your last post, about how your car was built and back space and free...etc..it obvious to me you have no clue what you are doing.. I agree 100% with Fast75Vega, Go buy the right size tires for the wheel..if ya gotta run free stuff then get out of Racing....its not just your life but other drivers beside you also.


    did you happen to read the latest sticky from one of Our senior members...just in case here is the thread.....I am done here...

    read slow and multiple times if needed :
