???? 4" bs is about perfect for 12.5's on a TJ.... I wouldn't go with a 10" wheel if you air down offroad, you run more of a risk of loosing a bead. On road it'll be fine, just heavier...

Like Inferno says, if you want to air down you are better off with the 8 inch rim with 3.75 to 4 inch back spacing. I would stay with the 15 inch rims as there are more tires to chose from and less expensive.
