15x10 wheel required for 33/12.50/15 tires?

As some of you may remember from my earlier post identifying my existing wheels (Thanks for that! I'm finally ready to order another as a spare), I have 33" tires that are 33" x 12.50 x 15. Are these definitely on 10" wide wheels? I see both 8" and 10" available on the internet:
AMERICAN EAGLE Series 028 Polished | Wheels | Rims | Rimz | Wheelz

Any way to check aside from removing one of my existing tires from the wheel and taking a tape measure to the wheel?

Also, to confirm, I'd want either one of these bolt patterns, right?

15 10 5x114.3 / 5x115 / 5x120.65 -45
15 8 5x114.3 / 5x115 / 5x120.65 -30

Holy weirdness Batman... just went out and measured the wheels that are on it. They are 15x10s in the back and 15x8s in the front. Same tires (33x12.50x15) and now that I know they *look* very different. The fronts look more donut like while the backs look wider.

That said, I'm going to get the 8 inch replacement wheel as my full size spare. That way, they will fit front or back if I blow one.

i'd run a 15x8

when you air down, the tire has a lot higher tendency to slip off a 15x10 wheel than a 15x8.

You need to replace those rear wheels. You can see how the tires look different. It's like running two different size tires front and rear. You are stressing the drivetrain in 4WD.

Good advice Owen and Sparky - I'll order 3 of the 15x8s so I have a good spare and the rear ones the same size.

Am I correct in assuming that the 15 8 5x114.3 / 5x115 / 5x120.65 -30 version is the one I want? Is that bolt pattern correct? Looks like Wheel # 0289-5806 is the right fit. Just want to be sure before I buy these.

Bump. Hoping someone can confirm my last update above about needing the 5x114.3/5x115 version of this wheel. Everything I've seen online says 5 lug 4.5 inch or 114.3mm Medium Offset. That means this wheel is right, right?

5x4.5 is the bolt pattern I think 5x114.3 is comparable.

Yes, 4.5 inches = 114.3 millimeters.

Make sure you check your 8" wheels for backspacing. You might want to get the same backspacing on your 3 new wheels you purchase. The TJ is 5 on 4.5 or 5 on 114.3.
