Depends on the type of wheeling you do, and how much you use your heep, as a daily driver. 10" wheel, will give you better tire life, but not as good for off road. That is based on a 12.5" wide tire.

I have run 8" and 10" I like 10" better on my 35x12.50's. But either one would work.

I run 10's on my rubi, and 9's on my YJ. It is all about personal choice. Some claim that you will loose less air pressure, when aired down, on 8" rims. I know from personal experience, that a 8-9" rim, will get less rock rash, than the 10" rim.

What about the tire sticking out further on an 8 and snagging on the rocks? Where a 10 in not so bubble like?

I like the 10's cuz it add's 4 inches to my track width. I sometimes corner hard on the way to work.
