BS!!!!!!! If rims are bad, its not from the tires

33's are not that big, the OEM tires are a 32 depending on the model.

What do you tow? weight? I tow a 30' TT (7500#) and a 10K equipment trailer on aftermarket alum wheels. You need to check the load rating of any aftermarket wheel, but if made for a 2500/3500, probably adequate

I guess I should have said their saying because the tires are to wide for the rim and the pressure on the lip of the rim is what made them go bad. I tow a gn cattle and flatbed. Anywhere from 10-25k I would guess
Have never heard of that either. Again, the rubber is softer than the steel, I would expect tire failure before wheel...

Assuming you have 7.5 or 8" wide wheels...

Have a picture of your wheels?

Try another tire shop and see what they say...

I know weight is what they are saying but in the jeeping world we run 12.5 on 8" wide wheels and under 10 PSI and crawl over boulbers rolling the tire over the rim lip and no issues. I don't see a fully inflated tire w a solid bead, bending a wheel lip.

I've had my local tire shop tell me the same thing when we had 16 inch wheels. Over a lot of miles the lip gets thin from the too wide of tires.

I guess w aluminum wheels it makes sense it could happen... but i would expect it to be obvious....
