35x12.5r15 on 15x8 wheels?

I am new to the off road thing and I was wondering if 35x12.5 is a good choice on 15x8 wheels

Yes. The 8" wheel is the best choice for a 12.5" wide tire.

X2, a 15x8 aftermarket wheel with the right amount of backspacing (3.75 to about 4.25") is ideal for a 35x12.50 tire.

That size tire would rub with the factory aluminum 15x8 wheel though because it has too much (5.25 to 5.5") backspacing.
