15X8 vs 15X10

whats the difference? i was looking at my wheels yesterday while in the shop, and found that they are 15X10.. I know i ordered 15X8's, but would any of us expect any less from 4wp? lol..

Still havnt figured out the backspasing yet.. the rims didnt seem to tell what the backspacing was..

The difference is the 15x10 is 2 inches wider then the 15x8.

The 15" is the height of the rim, (from the ground to the top of the rim).

One isnt really better then the other. The 10in rim will make the tires stick out from the truck more so, it depends alot on the look you are looking for.

I remember Stone swaped his 15x8s for 15x10s because he said the tires wear better. But alot of people run 15x8s with 33x12.50 tires and I've never heard any problems of this. I've been thinking lately of getting the body lift and 33's But I'm not sure whether I should keep my 15x8s or go up to 15x10s.

i run my 35x 12.50 on a 15x8 with a -19 offset. and imo they look good. they wear about as even as i ask them to(which is not much). its not something im worried about though. like someone said above, its all about what you are going for. if your going to wheel, go with a 15x8. if youre going for looks, 15x10

heavily depends on the tire, my foot print with 35x1250 MTZs on a 15x8 wheel was wider than my buddies 35x1250 KM1s on a 15x10.

yeah, sometimes 15x10 are better because the tread will lay flatter when on your truck instead of being ballooned like on a 15x8 but it all depends on your tire size, i have heard of guys saying the 10's destroy wheel bearings but i have no personal experience with that

i like a narrow wheel for wheeling and airing down.

17x8.5 with a 37x13.5 tire. Ive had the wide wheels before, blowing a bead sucks and i prefer not to do it again.

It took me almost 4 years.. but yea it sucks.

what sucks more than losing a bead is losing a bead in mud.. seen that a ton of times.

That's why you run beadlocks...
I prefer 15x8's if you wheel it much or air down much. If it's a mostly street truck, 15x10's make it look wider and will do great.
