id definitely go with a 10" wide wheel then specially if you're going to run those fenders.

I was told 15x8 would be better as it will make more tire sit flat on the ground at running PSI. I don't know how true it is. but it makes sense.

Normally I would say 8” but since you are trying to achieve a wider look then maybe the 10”,

I believe that the 8” rim allows a different tire pattern on the ground how much, who know unless you test it out with both rims.
But with a 3.75 or 4” BS, you will not get much outside of an OEM fender let alone the wider Pre-Runner Fenders.

Maybe a wider suspension is in the works somewhere !

I was told that the 10" wheel would cause the sidewall to bulge, as it does on my F150.

Im running 12.5" wide tires on 8" wide rims and they are just fine, I think they look better than they do on a 10" wide rim too. People will say they wear bad on 8" rims but thats just BS, my MT's are wearing perfectly.

i run 12.5 wide on 8.5" wide. no problems. a 8" rim has bulged sidewalls, the 10" has more flat sidewalls on the tire.

yeah but a lift has no effect on a wheel. it will look the same width wise since you're going with the same size tire all three of those trucks have, 33x12.5

I'm in the same boat. Difrent truck. 2x4 4 in lift. I have 15x8 wheels back ordered, but second thoughts are coming in. Future project is 3in body lift for clearance and 33in tires should I cancel my order and try 15x10 so I don't hafto order them later ("saven money") or will that not even fit my truck right now?

i run 33x12.50 bfg a/t with Mickey Thompson classic ll black 15x10 3.31 bs. i like my tires to stick out. when i ran 15x8 even when below 30 psi they wore in the middle like the outside edges were untouched about and inch or so on each side. i wanted my tread to wear evenley too. Although with the 15x8 it seemed to sit a tad higher too.

A 12.50 tire calls for 8-10" rim. I think 12.50s look better on am 8".

Also, the wider the rim the further it sticks out and the more body interference you will encounter.

Maybe even a shorter turning radius.

If you are running stock fenders then the 8" rim should look better.
