What is the widest rim that you should put a 15.5x38 tire on?

14" to 16" there are so many variables, type of tires, soil type, air pressure, and the speed you run!
Keep a log on your pulls and you will find what works for you!
I run a 15" on my 15.5s.....and my cut tires for the few classes I pull in...

We have run 15.5"s on are tractors for years and they seem to work best on 16" wheels.

I have 15.5 X38 mounted on 14 15 and 16 in wheels cant till a lot of difference14 in makes the tires taller.I think air pressure is more inportant then rim width.
