Yeah man honestly if they are done right, then they both can look good. Really just depends on the backspacing and such. There are some 15x8's that dont stick out hardly at all but others like mine and ranger 4x4 that do. Some 15x10's barely stick out as wide as that but other 15x10's stick out super far.

What made it the easiest for me after going through the same headache as you is if you have fender flares than get 15x10's. If you dont have flares just get 15x8. It also helps to find the exact rim you want and hopefully find someones truck that already has it on so you can get a great idea of what your will look like and go from there. Just my honest opinon.

Hmm

It is really all personal preference, you install what you think will look good to you and
don’t worry about the rest, It is always a tuff decision when it comes to 8’ or 10” rims
for some reason and there always seems to be lots of opinions on it . I went with 10” rims and never once wished I hadn’t, course every time there is a issue with my truck my 76 year old father says it because I have 10” rims on there or because it was lifted. You know back in his day they lowered everything and but skinny tires on god that must have looked awful good luck and Happy New Year

flares= 15x10's
no flares= 15x8's

i prefer 10's with a 12.50....i have also noticed more even tread wear with the 15x10's over the 15x8's....all in opinion really tho...either are just as good as the other..just personal preference

Is it just me, or do alot of trucks need upper ball joints? maybe just the angle of the pic. I ask because i just put ball joints on.
I like both the 15x8s and the 10s. I already have some 10s (although people say theyre ugly) prob gonna run those with 3.75 BS. boy do they stick out though.
