35 x 12.5 x 15, what rims?

I'm looking at tires and have decided on 35/12.5/15 as the size I'm definitely going with. Right now I'm at a 15x6 Eagle rim, which I LIKE, but I'm not looking to bulge or pop a bead, so I'm moving on.

What width rim (looking to stay with 15) should I go with for the money, and what backspacing? Local tire shop told me 15x10, but that jumps the price up considerably.

I'm liking Black Rocks rims,



I'm definitely going steel. I don't rock, mostly in sand, so rash isn't a concern and steel I can repair and paint as necessary.

15x8 should be fine with 3.75 bs. You can run 15x10 as well, but most folks go with the 8's. Don't for get to upgrade your steering with 35's, the currie unit is nice.

^^^ Yep, I'd stick with a 15x8, so you can air down.... and save a buck or two. And don't forget to upgrade the brakes.

I'm currently running 33x12.5r15. Fixing to get new wheels and tires. What's the advantage of going to 15x8 rather than staying with the 15x10?

You can air down more offroad with a narrower wheel and not have to worry so much about loosing a bead. And they're lighter, and less expensive....
