15x8 or 10 for DD w/ 33x12.5?

Getting some new tires soon, might as well get 15" steelies while I'm at it. Just wondering what width rim is better for a DD, airing down sometimes to 15 big minimum.

Just looking for some opinions

I got 15x8. They are working great for me so far. Only thing I wish it had was different backspacing so they stuck out a little farther...

15x10s will wear out wheel bearings faster

Downey is right although it will depend on offset.

Thanks guys. I'm leaning towards the 8's more because of the airing down mostly
