i need opinions Wheel size issues...4.0 edge

WOOHOOO so im VERY VERY VERY close to having the cash saved up for these wheels if you scroll down they are the ones with the red ring. oh and heres my truck ..http://www.cardomain.com/memberpage/777940/4

wheels here...
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...spagename=WDVW

the issue i am having is size. i can go 15x8 15x10 or 16x10
I REALLY like the way 16's look with like a32 tire, 15x10 would be my second choice and last 15x8.

all this stuff i hear about 10 wide being bad for our trucks which by the way is an 04 unlifted edge 4x2 4.0 5spd

pwer isn't an issue. will my truck suffer? and will i experience any drivetrain issues because of the 16's or 15x10's?

id really like to hear what yuo all recommened? or am i worried about something that doesn't matter because 15 and 16 are very close in size anyway.

do a 15x8 with an 11.50 tire.... if you go 16" rim you'll pay A LOT more for tires and if you got 10" width that will cause MAJOR STRESS on susp components (balljoints) and gonna be replacing them A LOT.

16 and 15 are close in size but on avg I'd say about $20-30 a tire ;-)

I have a set of 15x10 rims with 39.5x15 super swamper on my truck with just a spindle lift and body lift. I have'nt had any suspension or driveline problems at all, nor do my tires rub.But check to see what gears and rear end your truck has, you have the 4.0 so plenty of power, but you still should't have and driveline problems with 32's. I have the 3.0 but I have the 8.8 rearend with 4.10 gears, and I have no trouble. So good luck to ya...

"Offset: -38mm Backspace: 4 inches" <-- thats a lot of backspacing. I run a 9inch wheel ( -26mm backspace ) and an 11.50 inch tire and have very minor rubbing. Your looking at adapters with those wheels as ( from the pics ) they are a 6 or 8 bolt pattern.
