jpdocdave this comes up all the time, i've done both, i've never had a 10" wheel bust a bead on me wheeling the crap out of it. 10" wheel sticks out farther, slightly widening the stance making a little more stable, looks cool to some, making it wider on tight trails also. 8" wheel most guys prefer, for what jerry said, the bead to stay seated. its a personal thing, go with what you like.

Jerry Bransford For a straight street Jeep, a 15x10 wheel would be fine. But for a Jeep that sees both street and trail use where you'll be airing down your tires, 15x8 is by far the preferrable way to go. I ran 15x8 with my 33x12.50 tires with excellent success and the same wheel is working great with my 35x12.50 tires. And think of it this way... a tire that is aired down for offroading has a heck of an easier time staying seated safely against two wheel edges that are 8" apart than if they were 10" apart.

flattietj personally i would run an 8" rim but either would work.....i would look at what tires you plan to run and what the manufacturer suggests
