    What is the widest tire I can put on a 7" wide rim without a problem or looking stupid?

    i'm thinking that if the tire width is within 2" of the rim, you're good. So in this case 9".

    The early 90's chevrolet 454 ss trucks had a 15x7 wheel, with 275-60-15 on them, and the had a nice look in my opinion.
