15x10 rims

I am thinking about getting 15x10 rims and i was wondering if it would mess up anything. I have heard that the wider rims make you ball joints wear faster. I have 15x8s with 38/12.50s now

the only thing ive heard..is the ball joints..ive been on the 10s for 15K no ball joint problems..you dont wheel so i think you will be fine..

just will you have the clearance to run the 38s on the 15x10s..cuz it will make them stick out wider so you might rub in some places..

then i think you should be good to go Josh....only think is the ball joint thing..but i dont think you will have a problem since you dont wheel it..basic driving wont kill them as fast as wheelin would..i say go for it..go ahead and get that wider stance

Your wheel bearings will wear out faster as well.

Yeah the 15x10's will make the tire appear to be alot larger, etc (better IMO). Just what everyone said, wheel bearings and ball joints will wear quicker.
