15x8 is actually the size preferred by most for up to a 33x12.50 tire. Backspacing should be from 3.5 to4.25 in most cases.

X2, right on the $$$ though I'd bump that 3.5" to 3.75" minimum.
Remember that having a different opinion doesn't also require one to be a jerk when expressing it.

When you have a choice, buy American.
