15x8 or 15x10 rim size question.

Very soon im going to purchase new tires (unknown which yet) but they will be 33x12.5x15. I was wondering which rim width would look better with those tires and which would cause more clearance issues. My truck currently has a 3 inch spindle lift with cranked tbars and 3 inch leafs in the rear. Again just want to know if my current 15x8 rims will be fine or should i get 15x10's. And if anyone has pics that would be appreciated as well. Thanks in advance.

Both are with 33x12.5x15 Cooper Discoverer STT's. Some with the stepside bed and some after I got the fleetside bed.

15X10's look great, but your front end components won't last as long as on 15X8's. Hella stress on a 10" wheel. IMO, 8". Too each his own though, but that's the truth bro.

Honestly, you wont see much of a difference between the rims. I have heard though, if you get too small a rim on too wide a tire, you cant air down the tires much for snow or youll break the bead or whatever its called.

Either will definitely work... personally I like 15x10s on trucks with flares and 15x8s without.

I changed bj's once on the truck since I owned it and that was 4 years half with the stock rims and half with the 10's.
