Looking At Cragar Soft 8's. Question in what size?

Hey everyone! I'm looking at new tires and wheels on my stock TJ. I plan on in the near future putting a 2" BB and I'm getting 31x10.50 tires. I plan in getting the soft 8 too just wondering which size wheel to go with the 15x 7 or 15x 8. Thanks for the help!!

I would personally go with the 15x8. They are a more common size and would be easier to sell or trade if you wanted to down the road.

I would also spend a little more and go with an aluminum rim. Many out there that look close to a soft 8.

The aluminum is lighter, balance better, and stay balanced. Especially if you plan on airing down for some traction off road.

15x8 will give you the capability to upgrade to bigger tires in the future, this is what it looks like with 15x8 with 4" backspacing just with D- window cragars 31x10.50 duratracs no lift
