Default Tall Fat Tire Skinny Rim Experiment

Anyone here with a full size truck ever successfully mounted 33 or 35" tall by 14 inch wide mud tires on 10 inch wide wheels and tried it out? Just want to know if anyone has attempted this and if they encountered any driveablity problems. I'm guessing cornering abilities will be signifigantly reduced, but I want to hear from those who might have already done it. People in the past have said don't use less than a 12" wide wheel with a 14" wide tire, but I want to hear from the folks who have experimented with a 10" wide wheel and tall, fat tires. All information is welcome.

If you're going to be doing a lot of off roading, it probably won't matter a great deal. However, if you're going to be doing a lot of on road driving they probably won't wear well and may not track and turn well. No personal experience.[:-]

I heard you're not supposed to run a tire more than 4 inches wider than your rim...
