Rob Yes the 33 1/2 & the 34 1/2 both work very well on a 14 wide rim, in fact most all the T/F cars ran the 36 tire on the 14 wide for many years. The idea that you need a wheel within 1" tire size is true only if you are running a tire that is the smallest tire you could get away with. Running a narrow wheel is great when over tireing, this lets you run on bad tracks with low pressure and higher pressure on good tracks. The car will get up on the tire more quickly and take less power down track. I ran 14x32x15's on 8" wheels on my old dragster for many years. You could even run the N T/F combo ($$$) they run a spec tire 33 1/2 X 13 X16 on a 10, 11 or 12 inch rim. I like the 17 wide tire myself. For your car you do not need liners or beadlocks just screws & tubes are legal for running in the 7's but check the rules.
