I have had both 15x8 and 15x10...I only have a 2" suspension lift but I found that the 15x10s rubbed without the spacers...the 15x8 w/32s have no issues.

X4 on 15x8. If it were strictly a street Jeep then 15x10 would be ok but for a combo street/trail rig where the tires are aired down for offroading, you want the narrower width wheel to help keep the tire seated more easily at lower air pressures.

i know everyone on here only says 15x8. i like the stance of 15x10, and i've wheeled the crap out of 15x10's aired down with no probs. now they may rub or cauze problems if you don't have enough lift, or set up properly. i don't know maybe i was just lucky, unless you're gonna go crazy hardcore do whichever you like, and if you're gonna go crazy then beadlocks solves the problem, so i don't really fully no why 15x8 is the only acceptable wheel on here.

the theory is fine, 8" wheel keeps the bead tighter, but i've never busted a bead on the trail, and i've seen guys with both wheel sizes do it airing down to less than 8 psi, so i always gotta pipe in for the other side when this conversation comes up

Dave, ya gotta admit it takes less air pressure in a balloon to keep it firmly wedged between two points 8" apart than if they were 10" apart.

ya, like i said the theory is fine, i won't argue there. i just bring up the other side on this conversation. like i said, i've done 10" wheels with no probs and hard wheeling aired from 8 to 10 psi. if the poster likes the look of 10 wheels he shouldn't worry in my opinion.

if you wanna run less than 8 psi i'd say you should have bead locks anyway. so who cares about the conversation then. below 8 psi i've seen both wheels lose the beads.

So far, zero losses of a tire bead with 35x12.50 on a 15x8 non-beadlock wheel and I regularl go down to as low as 7 psi. I am convinced I wouldn't have been so lucky on the trails I run if I was running a 15x10 wheel.

probably jerry, and i've seen guys loose them with that combo. i never lost a bead on 10" wheels aired to 8 either. and some guys have. and think about this, we're talkin less than 1% variables on pressures that low, what gauges are that accurate. 7 might be 5 or 9.

i bring up the other side cuz i don't think he's gonna lose a bead on the trail, and thats why everyone says only do 8" wheels.

my jeep i'm building will have 8" wheels i think cuz i'm gonna run a tall tire, but maybe not as wide, and i don't want it sticking out because i love super tight hard trails. when i was younger my 10" wheels stuck out at least 5 inches, and it looks cool on big jeeps. but now i would rather have the performance on the trail.

i don't think just cuz i'm doing something, its the only way to do it.
