15x8 makes the tire look better IMO

Yeah i think i'm leaning to 15x8 just because the wheel i want doesn't come in 15x10 and 8's will be cheaper.

with 33s I think the 10s make the tires look too fat. Go with 8s. If you were getting 35s, I'd say go with 15x10s (or 17x9s is what I'd run =D)

15x8s it is then. I think im going to go with the Dunlop Mud Rover, or i might just go with the General Grabber AT 2's or whatever there called. I probably will end up going with the ATs due to all the highway driving i'll be doing next year.

they both look good i think but the problem with a 12.5 on a 15x8 is about an inch of tread on the out side of the tread doesn't touch the ground. That is the only problem i have with my 33x12.5 and 15x8's that i just got.
