Opinion Poll on Rims and Tires

I am going to spend some of my tax return on some new rims and tires. I have a few options to choose from and want all of your opinions.
First off, I don't know if I want 15x8 or 15x10's, I'm leaning towards 15x10, but not sure how it will look with an A/T, I know M/T look good on them.
Tires I am probably gonna get Goodyear Duratracs because they are a pretty aggressive looking A/T and seeing as I do mostly highway/city driving and very little off-roading, and I'm kind of over looking at my BFG's.

Here is my truck now:

The rims I'm looking at are these:

15x8 Ultra Drifters


15x8 Dick Cepek DC-2's


And I like these too, but they only come in a 16x8. Not sure how I feel about the increase in prices of tires for a 16" rim.

16x8 Ultra Maverick



Let me know what you guys think

Maverick out of the choices you listed. I like the wheels you have now too though.

Only issue I have with the mavericks is the fact I can't find them in a 15x8. Goodyear duratracs for 15's are $154. With 16x8's they are $206 with a 305/70R16. Kind of a ridiculous price increase if you ask me.

Yeah, you do pay a premium, but I think 16's look better. They are a good balance of tire and wheel. I had 16's on my Ranger. Try buying tires for 18's. I paid more for my SUV tires than I did for my 33" Mickey Thompson MTZ's.

Yea, I want the Mavericks.. but I want a 15x8 or 15x10, and on tire rack they only come in 16x8. Guess I will have to look for something similiar try to find another place that carries them.
