The perfect wheels for my new 33" Duratracs

Considering I just bought myself some nice new rubbers I'm looking for some pretty black wheels to mount them on. They need to be 15x4.5 and other than that I have a few things I need to ask here:

-8" or 10"? (Daily driver, no super hard wheeling)
-Steel or Alloy? (Daily driver, no super hard wheeling)
-Backspacing required?

I've heard alloys/8"s are better for situations like mine as they are lighter and stop easier. I like the look of stealies so I may just buy an alloy that looks like some but I've also looked at MT Sidebiters and ProComp 7031 series

15x8"size, 5x4.5 bolt pattern, I personally like aluminum wheels. and the backspacing is up to you and what your state allows as far as tire protrusion out past the fenders i'm not sure what the minimum backspacing is that you'll need I would think 4.25 or less (lower number). some states don't care, (like mine and states nearby) but some other states are kinda picky about it. you may have to consider getting wider fenders. My wheels have 3-5/8 backspacing and about 1/3 of the tire sticks out from the fender, check my profile pics if you want.
