Tire and Rims

I've decided im going with a 3" zone life and 1.25 BL.. I am now on to what rims and tires i want but Im a little confused on the sizes. I want 15" rims but don't know if i want the 15x8s or 15x10s and then what size tires fit on which rims? I know I want 33s and that the last number corresponds to the tire diameter so id want 15 but what about the middle number do i want 10.5, 9.5, etc....? thanks

33x12.5R15 or 33x10.5R15. Though The 33x10.5 are uncommon. 15x8 for the wheels. Either 456 or 488 on the gearing. 35x12.5R15 would work also but they will leave you less room for flex if flex is important to you

Ideally you will want your tire tread to be at least 2 inches wider than your rim width.
33x12.50x15 will fit both the 15x8 and the 15x10 rim rather well, but the 15x8 seems to be preferred by most for that tire size.

33x12.50's are common, and you'll find most tires offered in that size.
If you try to find 33x10.50, your going to see a drop in the number of your choices, there's just not as much demand for this size.
