8" wheels or 10"?
Pulling the trigger on my new Duratrac 33x12.5 and new wheels. 2002 TJ with 4" lift. Do I go with 8" wheels or 10"?

8". IMO 10" is too wide and you won't be able to air down as much.

For anything <= 12.5" wide, 8" wide wheel. For > 12.5" go with a 9" or 10" wide wheel. Most tires will tell you the size wheel it requires to.

We run that size on 10's without issue at 7 psi

Leaning toward the Level 8 soon as you guys make up your minds on the 8" vs. 10" debate. :whistling:

Stick with 8" width. When you air down, you will have more sidewall flex which is less likely to bust a beed on the trails. I don't like the look of 10" width on a 12.50 tire. Too much 'poke' for me.

I've had 33s on 8 wide for ten years. But my next set will be on 10 wide, I think they look better that way. More tread hitting the ground.

i prefer the look of 10s so thats wat i had on my old jeep. now im on stock 8in. but i think most ppl will tell u that 8s are better for the trail i couldnt tell u either way. i saw no diff. i had the same size tire on both rigs i still used the same deflaters down to 12 psi never had any flats or lost a bead.
