The width. Also, check for your offset. Your stock rim is probably 15/7 or 15/8 with no offset.

i know my stock wheels was a 7. im assuming all of them are stock. if you have at least a 3 inch lift i say got with a 10. i got about 5 in the rear and 6 in the front and i have a 10 inch wheel with a 4 inch offset. even though its only got 31 10.50s it still looks mean

the offset is how far the mounting point for the rim is away from the centerline of the rim. i forget which way is which, but it has to do with how deep looking your rims are.

in theory, you could order a 7 inch rim with a particular offset and it would look like a 8 inch rim with no offset.
