15x8 or 15x10 wheels

ok so heres my delema. i have a set of 32 inch mtrs mounted on 15x8 black rock crawler wheels and about a month ago chuck sold me his old 33s on 15x10 cragars that he had on his ranger befor he sold it to his dad.

anyways i am running the 33s on 15x10s on my truck now and they look great. one of the tires is about bald and i already found a used one for cheap.

was just wondering what everyones oppinion on witch wheels i should run the 10s or 8s.
they are both pretty much the same wheels just widths are different.
i wheel my truck about 2 times a month so i am constantly airing down to 15 psi or lower. i am leaning towards the 15x8s myself.
whats everyones oppinion on this. anyone got pics off 33x12.5 on a 8 inch wheel?

they be less likely to pop off the bead with x8's. i like the look of the x10's and i run them but for wheeling i think the x8's would work the best

Pictures you say? lol

On my sport trac (wheels/tires came off my ranger) - 33x12.50's on 15x8's with 3.75" backspacing




Same wheels on my ranger, different tire but same size





Go with the 8" wheels.

15x10s man!! I hate 15x8's now, I just sold my 15x8's and Mickey thompson mtz's, loved the tires, hated the rims.. I have some 15x10 eagle alloys coming shortly on MT claws.

EDIT: just read your keeping the 8's.

no, the backspacing has more bearing on that than rim width does.
