Rim and back spacing recommendation
 
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.

8" wide with 3.5-4.5" backspacing...

Is there any advantage to a 10" rim?

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'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.
