either will work. 15x8 with 3.5 or 3.375 backspacing would look killer. 15x10s are alil big imo. A buddies z71 has 15x10s and 33s and jus does not look right to me. Im wantin 33s on my 2.3 ranger lol, so im interested in seein what every one else says too.

imo...if you plan on going bigger...and like the fat tire sticking outside the fenders.....go with 15x10 w/ 4" backspace. If you want flat wit hthe flares, go with 15x8 w/ 3.625" backspace. I ran 15x8 w/ 4" backspace on my 32's back in the day(6 months ago. lol) and it looked pretty good.

Here's what i suggest...take a look around the site. There's a bunch of threads similar to this complete with a bunch of pics.


Take a peek at my truck...i know it's bigger than just a 3" bodylift.....but it's 15x10 w/ 4" backspace w/ 35x12.50s. So you can sorta gauge what 10's w/ 4" and 12.50 tires look w/ flares...
