Has anyone mounted 18x8.50-8 tri ribs on standard wide rims like found on a 682 or 782? Interested in getting tri ribs but don't like the stretched out look when they are on the wider (7") super rims. Wanted to squeeze them in a little on the 5 38" wide rims.

I'd have to look if mine on 782 are that size or not ?
If so, they seem to look ok?

Would you please take a photo or two when you check the size? I’m interested too. Thanks.

I saw those 18x8.50-8 tri ribs at Red Power Roundup last year - they are Huge! I chose 18x8.50-8 V61s for my Red Project, they are nice. Here's a pic showing comparison to 16x6.50-8 turfs

Look'n good Vince!

These are mine.... I was mistaken thinking they were 18's, they are 16 8.50x8. Quite a bit smaller than the V's

I found this picture. It stated that the front rims are 18-8.50 but they look like they might be on wide rims, maybe standard rims. I am not sure.
I am looking for something that shows a standard 682/782 rim with a super tire on it.

These are 16/6.5/8 Firestones on wheels that I narrowed to 4-1/4”. I didn’t like the stretched out look on the 5-3/8” wide wheels.
