driving on the "stretched" tires????

Need some advice. Im starting to like the look of the "stretched" tires. Im know some are inpracial on this idea and some love it. My main question is driving on the stretched tires. Im looking at 37x13.50x22 and 22x14 wheels. I was wondering from the people that have this done already how far and type of driving you do?

I ask this cuz there will be times that i will be driving 8 hours and didnt know if i would run into issues with the heat build up from the constant driving with stretched tires.

Thanks in advance

Here is a pick of Highon22's (silver ford)truck when he had the 37x13.50x22 w/22x14 wheels - see how the wheels are wider than the tire, its noticable in the sidewall.

The white truck is one from Intercity Concepts.

They both have 37x13.50x22 and 22x14 wheels.

I have never heard that term either LOL

the downsides from what I remember are in the event of a flat the tire may unseat and
the potential to curb rash a rim if no tire bulge is present to protect it

other than that IDK that Silver ford looks great IMHO but not sure that look is for Me?

Yeah ok I follow it's typically done on a smaller pickup with even smaller spoke wheels and even skinnier tires.

And south of the border. This reminds me of the 13" reverse offset craze on the import cars in the early 90s....hated it then, still hate it now. It's your truck and your money so do what you like but this looks to me to be exactly what the Dodge guys need someone to do so everyone will stop picking on them about their mirrors being flipped.

Personally, I think it looks retarded and to me is unsafe. Why woul you want a tire that is narrower than the wheel? I look at it like this.... You are driving at 55mph down the road an all of a sudden have to an evasive swerve, which puts a lateral rolling of the sidewall. I see the tire peeling away from the bead seat. I don't like that. Again just my .02 cents. Plus save a few dollars by using the 13.5" wide tire on a 12" wide rim.
