10" wides??

i was wondering what 15x10s look like on a rubi? got a buddy who says he will swap me even for his 15x10 simulated beadlocked rim with 33x12.50 bfg at's on them for my factory rubi rims with 305 nitto at's on them, both got about the same tread wear. didnt know how good of a deal this was and how it would look, or how much they would hit.

15x10" Wheels

Mickey Thompson Classic IIs 15x10 with 33x12.5-15s on 4.5" lift. Keep in mind the offset of the 15x10s is hard on the wheel bearings.

IMO 10" i too wide for a 12.5" tire. better go with some 8" wird rims.

I don't know about the "wird rims" but I would also stick with an 8" wheel.

i like the 10" wide rims, it gives a nice stance. i've wheeled the heck out of them before, and aired down to 8-10 psi, never popped a bead. most people say they make the bead weaker for wheeling, but i like them

The 10" wheels make my Jeep sit about 8" wider then stock. Just a little more stable then before.
