I asked about a 10" wheel and got no feedback.
A 10" wheel is not common. The offset on this wheel will put the tire 2" plus past the fender.

I have those wheels in 15x8.

I blacked out the "black rock" logo. But they've been great.



Why would you choose the 10?

What's the offset/bs of the 15X10? Doubt they offer the correct backspace needed to clear the calipers. I know a wider wheel fits the wider tire better in some cases but in the 15's you would have to have a -44 offset or 3.75 backspace to clear the calipers on a 10" wheel. The main reason people can't use a 15X10 wheel because most don't offer that extreme offset.

A 15 with 3.75 bs, as stated, would be needed to clear the Calp's, but the main problem would be excessive wheel bearing wear with that wide of an offset and rim width. Way way too much outside bearing load, 6.25". I would suggest if you really want a 10 wide rim you find one that is 16 or larger to clear the Calp's and has a 4.5 - 5" bs. I'm running a 2013 JKR with 18x9 -5.0" bs., so I'm only at 4" on the outside loading of the wheel bearing. This setup with 12.5 wides put the tire about 1.5" outside the stock fender flares.
Another problem with going much over 5" on the outside will be the excessive wheel steer/bump steer even with a steering stabilizer.
Just my 2c's thou!!
