05tjorange I've had both and would go with the 8" rim. That's what I have now with 33x12.50x15, on an 05 TJ with 3.75 BS.

wwch99tj Not really, if you are off road and air your tires down the 10" wide rim has a better chance of slipping the bead a leaving you flat...
The 10" wheel will also will put the tries pretty far outside the flares.

I have a 03 Wrangler with a 4" lift kit. We are running 33x12.5 15's and would like to know what is best rim width and proper backspacing for this.
