Re: 15x12 wides
I have to agree, what tires are you going to run on 12" rims?
Your current 31x10.5 will fit a 9 inch rim.
A 35x12.5 will fit a 11 inch rim at the absolute widest. Not that I think you'll be able to stuff something that big under an S10.
The only tire I can find on tirerack.com that will fit a 15x12 wheel is a Pirelli P-Zero Autocross/track special that's technically a "street tire" with a 140 treadwear rating. It's available up to 345/35R15 which would fit a 12 inch wide wheel. I can also find you drag slicks and road racing slicks that will fit, but if you've got all terrain/off road tires now, and you're lifted 2 inches, I doubt you're heading in this direction.
I can't even find agricultural tractor or heavy equipment tires that will fit a 15x12.
Or is this a plan to just drive on the bare wheels? Who needs tires anyway?
If you can't light up the tires in the first three gears, you need more power.
If you can light up the tires in the first three gears, you need better tires.
