you can see the manufacturers sugested rims size is located in summit right next to the tires i am selling my 26s to go with 28s

no the rims dont have to be the same width as the wheel is how ever theres an alowable range also a 10.50 tire may not be 10.50 in actuality i have 2610.50s that are only 8 inches wide (hook fine 12.s) any ways id recomend them there about 150 apiece new i am selling mine they have lots of traead left hold air good etc..... you can have em for 100$ plus shipping i can put them on ebay for ya if ya like or what ever there a year old and were used on my street car that has never seen the street

Those tires will fit, but the sidewalls will be rounded and will cause a bit of extra body roll. For a 7 inch wide wheel, the largest should be a 245.
As for tire and wheel pairing, you'll have a recommended wheel size for the tire. For example, you would get a wheel recommendation of 7-10 inches. To get the maximum performance of the tires, go with the widest wheel specified. Then the full width of the tire will be supported and not roll over.
For those 10.5 tires, I'd say a 10 inch wheel.
