Carlisle AT489 Standard, XL, and II

Carlisle gives rim widths for its AT489 tires in the Carlisle catalog. In practice, how much wiggle room does one have with these types of tires with respect to tire width/rim with matching? Several sources suggest the tire be 2 to 4 inches wider than the rim. However, Carlisle's catalog tables indicate rim widths are more like 1 to 2 inches wider.

Update: Carlisle customer service rep actually said up or down 2 inches from their catalog suggested rim size will work. So, our 1 inch variations should be just fine.
