18x10 wheel ?

I'm planning my new wheels and tires - Christmas bonus is just a month away!!! I wanted the DC-1 Black and the LT325/60R18's - either going with my 3rd set of Nitto Terra Grapplers, trying the Mickey ATZ, or MTZ, or Hankook MT. Also considered the Toyo MT. I need a working tire - high weight capacity - long tread life.

But I was bummed - I went to the DC website and the DC-1's are not available in 18x10!

What is?

I like the look of that style rim - I dont want anything with alot of voids and areas for stuff (mud and dirt and brake dust) to collect and be difficult to clean out - and a high capacity in itself. (DC-1 is 3400lb).

The 325/60R18 are 33x13.5x18 - most websites are showing a 9.5 - 10 " wheel width as prefered. So I was going with 10. But cant find 10 in what I wanted.

What now? I dont want what "everyone else has" - (KMC Rockstar - but I like the simular design of the wheel that flows from the outer rim to the center cap).

What do you guys suggest.

its gonna be hard to find a 10" wide wheel.... you will have no problem running a 13.5 wide tire on a 9" wheel....

Really?

Is the 9" okay with a 13.5" wide tire? Reason I'm skeptical is I have the LT305/70R16's on the factory 16x7" wheel - I know the wheel is a bit tight for a 12.5 tire but does work. I was a bit concerned with a larger tire (13.5 vs 12.5) even though the wheel will be 2" wider (9 vs 7 factory)

I'm assuming the tire wont wear funny on a 9" rim?

yah you'll be good.. 12.5 is good for a 8" wide wheel.... 13.5 on a 9" and we run 15.5 on a 10" wide wheel

Both of you (HeavyAssult & Surfdunn) are running the ATZ tire - how do you like it?
