wider rims

ok i have a 94 xl ranger 4x4 and i want to know whats the biggest size rim i can have on my 31x10.50 a/t's? (grabbers) i have stock fender flares and you cant see the tires stick out at all.... which i like having them stick out it gives it a more aggressive look. i want to stick with 15 inch rims.. iwas thinking 10 inch wide rims? (i dont offroad really) any help would be great.
