Possible buying new rims need some help

With my tax return i think i will be buying some new rims and tires. I want to get the american racing baja 15x10. Now should i go chrome or polished. I will be offroading with them and possibly winter but might keep the stock and use them for the winter. which backspacing and lug pattern will i need? got a body lift now so do u think i can run 34-12.50-15??? I want the interco truxus M/t. thanks

well you will need 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern... can you post a pic of the rims you are thinking about... and you should be able to fit those tires with a b/l but you will have some minor rubbing

I would get polished over chrome. Chrome is very unforgiving if you don't keep up on the cleaning. My current wheels are ruined beyond repair.

Get chrome wheels, they are SO much easier to clean than aluminum polished. Polished wheels pit and turn nasty over a period of time, and they are a pita to polish. I wish my DC-1s were chrome, all it would take is a little steel wool every once in a while.
