Wheel size for 32x11.50x15 tires

I just picked up a set of MTR/K's at a great price, I have a 2.5 lift and was wondering what size ( width) of rim would be best for this tire. Or more importantly what backspacing...any ideas?
Thanks

I run 4" backspace with 15x7 wheels and 34x10.50x15 tyres
With 33x12I would look at 8" wide wheels and same 4" backspace
Your tyre is inbetween so make your choice

If mjne, I would go 7" wide ( I run about 12 psi) while wheeling

I would go with a 10" rim. In the future with bigger/wider tires, you will thank yourself. My last set of tires was 32x11.5 on a 10" rim and they were 3 1/2" backspacing I believe, but it may have been 4". I honestly can't remember

15x7 or 15x8. I ran 32 11.5s on 15x7s and they worked great on the trails. 10 in wide wheels are just too wide if you ever air your tires down. I was losing beads with 13.5 wide tries and 15x10 wheels. I'm now running 33 13.5s on 8.75 wide wheels or there about.

I have 32's on 15x8 black rocks.

I run 10psi rear and 12psi front. No problems with de beading at all.

I was originally thinking 15x10, but I hope to start wheeling with this yj soon, so I'm leaning toward 15x8 now, given your responses. I was looking at MT classics, with 3.75 backspacing so I better start saving again.
Thanks for all the input

Those are some nice wheels, but if a wheel a few trails like I do, steel wheels ( tho hevier) are the aay to go

I run crager soft 8's and they are all bent up ( compared to normal car wheel) but still hold air and a cemblance of balance

Alum. Can crack or break!

Thread after thread on here about this topic. 31x10.50's to 33x12.50's all recommend a 8" wheel. Running 3.75 backspacing with 31x10.50x15's on 15x8 wheels.

I am sorry for giving the wrong info, I was tired.
I looked at mine today and they are 8" wide not 10". I had a set of 10" wheels on my last rig with some 39.5" SuperSwampers. 8" is what you need, and the other posters are correct about losing the bead on a wheel that is too wide
