What width, offset, and backspacing do i need for 33x12.5x15 on 15x8?

ok, i decided im gonaa run 33x12.5x15 buckshots on my truck. I dont have a bl yet but im prolly gonna get a 3in here pretty soon. I was wondering what wheels to get. i mean i kno i want black rock crawler 15in wheels but what width. Ive been lookin at posts and i think i wanna go with 15x8s and not 15x10s. WHat do you think how will the 8s compare to the 10s as far as looks, off road perf. etc... go? and which width would look more bad a$$? Also what backspacing and offset do i need for these wheels and tires so i wont rub? would it be the same backspacing and offset if i didnt do the bodylift? so heres what im asking.

1. What wheels are better for the 33x12.5x15s? 15x8s or 15x10s
2. What backspacing and offset do i need if i do a 3in bl?
3. What backspacing and offset do i need if i just crank the t-bars?

Basically im want it to look bada$$. ive seen lots of rangers with the tires real wide with the tires stickin out patst the fenders and it looks mean. I also want them to perform well off road. lastly i dont want them to rub even if i dont get the body lift.

Thanks guys. Oh and by the way, what for those of you with Edges with 4.0s runnin 33s, what mpg do you get? and what do you havta do to corect the speedo?

i'd say 3.75

although you can run anywhere from 3.25-4.5 (which is stock)

i personally think 33x12.5's are better on 15x8's. if your gonna run 35's, then get 15x10's.

Try lookin at summitracing.com, the shipping will be like 8.95 for the whole set. That's how much shipping they charged me for my 15x8 US wheel 94s

15x10's push the side wall out alot more than 15x8's. IMO, wider looks better. Go 15x10's.

Zach (zabeard) is prolly going to end up selling his 33x12.50 buckshots here soon, i'd talk to him if you dont want to spend $ for new tires.

can you run a 15" rim on a 04 XLT 4x4 or do they put 16's on for a reason?

you can run aftermarket 15's not stock because of the different offset
