no i just already have 15x8's and i dont really want to buy new rims, plus i dont like the wide look, i personally think that 12.5inch wide tires on 15x8's look alot better

12.5" on the 15x8's is doable but pushing the limit. there are a lot of cheap rims out on the market like crawlers.

my joke was more towards tall but skinny meat's if you are going with a 12.5" you'll look fine

ya ive got 33x12.5 terra grapplers on 15x8 eagle 589's and its the look that i want and i just want to carry that on once the lift is put on and i get new tires

and im not a big fan of crawler rims cause the whole black on black thing just dosent do it for me, and the "chrome" crawlers, well, ill just leave it at that, i know the rims i have now are not all that expensive but i just dont want to dish out more money than i would have too

please dont be giving false info. a 15x8 with a 12.5 tires is in no way pushing it. people run 12.5;s on 7" rims too. a 15x8 will give better bead retention anyways. I had 15x10's with my 12.5's wish i had gone 15x8. i just mounted my 36's on 15x8's much happier
