10" wide wheels?

The used Jeep I bought has 10" wide wheels with 31X10.5X15 tires. Is there a good reason for 10" wheels? I'm thinking about some new 8" wide wheels and different tires. I don't plan to run on the beach. Thanks

I think the 10 wide rim is too big for 31's. Your tires would probably look better with the 8in rims. You can run the 8in. rims all the way up to 35in. tires. Its actually recommended.
The tire's bead will hold stronger on the smaller width rim.

10" is way to wide for that tire. 8" would be fine. with a 10" rim you want a min of 12.50 tire.
