Quality inspection=going wheeling with them/it/whatever you're "inspecting"

I'm surprised with all the answers and comments that no one mentioned the most important reason you go with 15 x 8 instead of 15 x 10.....SIDEWALL flex! If you are airing down to go offroading, especially up here in New England...you want the FLEX of the sidewall at low pressure to allow the tire to mold to the rocks and such...watch some REAL offroading videos and you'll see how it works. With a wider rim, you lose a lot of that flex-so the vehicle itself starts moving around, side to side kind of. With the sidewall flexing, your vehicle stays put-you are in better control and not moving the steering wheel all around. Tried, tested, and true....it really works. So consider WHERE you are driving as the critical choice in what you buy. I'm running Cepek Crushers, 33" x 12.5" x 15" on 15" x 8" black steel spokers under my 2003 Rubicon. 4" lift, skid plates end to end, winch, custom bumpers, plenty of extra weight from stuff and it rarely finds something it can't go over on the trails here.

I disagree with that, we have been running them for over 13 years and have yet to blow a tire off a bead. You should be able to go wherever you wanna go with 6-9 psi in um depending on the tire....if you cant, your on a trail that is too much for your rig. That's the biggest problem I see when I go out, people on the big boy trails with 33's and bashing the crap out of their jeep trying to prove something. If we drag stuff with 44's you prolly don't wanna follow with your 33's yanno.

Whether you agree or not, it's still true and a simple fact that you can air a tire down to a lower air pressure with less danger of it coming unseated with a 15x8 than a 15x10 wheel. It's simple physics... it takes less air pressure to keep a tire bead pushed out and seated safely against two wheel edges that are only 8" apart than if they are 10" apart.

No doubt 10" wheels are great for "crap roads". I don't really care about roads though since my 15x8 wheels still work fine on my streets and highways. I'm more interested in how much better 15x8 wheels work for offroading since I air down to such low air pressures.

not familiar with a duratrac so I can't say for sure, but on a MTZ we have went down to 7 in the back and 9 in the front...but more than anything, its your driving style and your terrain

So do I. My recommendations are made for the other 99.9% of the people here who do not have beadlocks like you and I are fortunate enough to have.

And my comments are directed in the same manner. For over 13 years I have run a 10" wide wheel on jeeps with zero issues...granted we don't beat the ever living crap out of um in the trails, but 90 percent of the people on here don't either. I am not arguing with physics (got A's in college in that subject hehe), I am just offering my experience with tons of jeeps over alot of years
