I am curious if I only do 2.5" lift on my yj I was going to get 15x10 rims. Question is is that too wide? Would I be ok with 15x8? I want to do some trail riding (when she gets finished in the shop) and is my dd so I was going to just get 31s but wonder if would be happier with 33s....this is confusing lol. Rims I'm looking into is either Mickey Thompson classic 2 alloys (kinda want black though) or ion 171 black machined or 174 if you can change the ring.

15x10 rims should be fine with 31x10.50 tires, I run 33x12.50 on 15x10 wheels, and as far as choosing the right size for you is based on your lifestyle, a lot onroad or offroad etc. Now with 33x12.50 tires you will need a larger lift than 2.5 hope I helped

Ok thanks! I really wish I could do a lot of off road, but until my son grows up a bit more I know I won't be able to as much as I want, so maybe I'll get the 15x8 for now. Can always sell them and upgrade right? Lol
