Rim Width

Im going with the MT Classic II (shown below).
Im not sure what size rim I want to run.
Im running 33*12.5*15 Buckshot Maxxius Mudders tires.

Ultimate Question: should I get 15*8 or 15*10

Just want personal opinions! Thanks

personally 15x10 eather way are you running a body lift? even with the 15x8 you will need to max the T-bars and probly trim on the front valance. and 15x10 with out body lift is pretty much no go

No personal experience, but from what I've read...it seems if your running 32's and under go 15x8, once you go to 33's go 15x10's

Body lift goes on Saturday. Rims and Tires are next.

I LOVE MY BUCKSHOTS.
This will be my second pair! I guess everyone has their own opinions on them!

i bet the 33's would look better on 15x10's.....i like the wider foot print also....i have had my *** chewed by a few members on here for saying 15x10's with a wider foot print was not near as good as a 15x8 when you mud.....from my experience a wider footprint is better that way you dont have to air down, but i guess people like to air down...

naw this is all BS. go 8s. just go do this little poll run on pirate4x4, and you'll see the huge majority of them use 8s for 12.50s.

8 wont wear the tires badly, thats BS as well. and i think the 15x10s are too bulgy lookin anyway.

What???? With a 15x8 it will raise the center of the tire and cause it to wear more uneavenly than if it wear mounted on a 15x10 on top of the fact that they look dumb as hell.

in all the time i worked at a tire shop i have NEVER EVER EVER seen a 15x8 wear badly on a 12.50 section width tire. EVER. the only reason it would wear badly is if you over inflated the tire, or lack of rotations maybe.

I dont know what youre saying, but anybody i know that wheels on a regular basis runs 15x8s. like i said, go ask this on pirate.those guys will smoke you all day long as far as 4x4ing is concerned...
