It seems like most people like 10's for looks, but no real comments on advantages offroad. So for the person initally asking the question still to be answered is: what are YOUR goals for your truck? From that will come your answer, and not anything anyone on here decided.

If you want looks, I'd say 10's without a doubt. But there are disadvantages to a wider rim aired down -- so that's a consideration also. Few of us will be running bead locks (other than the "fake" ones) on our trucks, so it's a possible issue for you if you will be airing down much.

IMO I would get the 15x10 only if you plan on going to a tire wider then 12.5 later down the road.

Yea I'd go with 15x8's less chance of the tire comin off the bead when your wheelin. 10's would look more aggresive though you'd have to talk to people runnin that setup about wheel bearing issues. I ran 15x7s with my 12.5s for a couple months on and off road, you could feel a little extra shimmy in the wheel when on the trail but I'm sure over time it's not a good setup for the street.

dun remember who asked ion 170's hecka cheap compared to the m.t's and when u order the ring only comes in silver so udhave to spray em or get them powder coated which i got a quote at like 60 ish for all 4.

and back to the real topic...I agree with ranger1 in that 10'sare ideal if you plan on going 12.5 or wider down the road. although i have 11.5s and they sit nicely and im getting sweet traction all the way as i mostly do city and highway miles.

I often find myself wishing I had gotten 15x8s instead of 15x10s, simply because I don't like how far the tire sticks out in the front. I think 15x8s would sit in a little better, and make the truck look a little taller. Here's a pic so you can see how much they stick out...(15x10s on 33x12.50 tire)
