http://youtu.be/MmAZ48s4i6sRims look great but the tire stretching is awful....and arguably dangerous. It's a general understanding that rims that wide do not accomodate tires that narrow... you run the risk of popping the bead off the rim while cornering and of course the rims are succeptable to all kinds of damage due to the tire not reaching the edge to protect it. Ironically, the tires mounted on those rims have a "rim saver" edge on them that is designed to stick out further than the edge of the wheel.
Good looking car, absolutely ignorant use of tire/wheel combination.
Oh... well that certainly proves its safe. End of discussion. I'd better alert the rest of the automotive community of this fantastic demonstration of how it's absolutely not possible for the wrong size tire to debead or damage a rim. Well done.
I've asked this to many other stretch haters and have yet to have gotten an answer....Oh... well that certainly proves its safe. End of discussion.

1) I have no video and no desire to search for one. Same goes for a news story. I have seen stretched tires come off the bead, so there is my personal account but something tells me you won't accept it as valid proof. It didn't cause an accident....but it did ruin his wheel, his day and his credibility for not doing foolish things.I've asked this to many other stretch haters and have yet to have gotten an answer....
Show me a video, news story, personal account, where a stretched tire has come off the lips of a wheel and caused an accident.
I think I'm going to go on all the 4x4 forums and tell those guys to stop running over sized tires because they come off the wheel all the time. [facepalm]
Hate to break it to ya .. but you're outta your mind. Low aspect ratio tires on huge rims are actually proven to meet DOT standards.. even as shitty as they look....tires on the wrong rims are not, however. Sticking a square peg in a round hole doesnt make you a genius, it proves you're retarded.idk if anyone was watchin the vid but hes not riding on his sidewall.. there is plenty of rubber meeting the road and none of it is on the sidewall.. the tire is streched at the sidewall nowhere else "so y so angry!?" LOL! i dont see how riding this wheel/tire combo is "dangerous" its juss as bad as running oversized rims with skinny low pro tires that have 1/2" sidewall.. correct me if im outta my mind?!?!
