    Like the title says, I want to see some shots that will show the difference in how 12.5" wide tires look on 8" wide wheels vs. 10" wide wheels. I currently have 33x12.5x15 on 10" wide rally's, and they look pretty good to me, but some members on here are pretty vocal about putting 12.5" wide wheels on 8" wide rims. Also go ahead and throw out the pro's and con's of each, as well as all your personal opinions about it. What do you have, do you like 'em, would you change them if you could? Thanks fellas.

    Here is my truck with 35/12.5/16 (acutally 315/75/16) on 16X10 rims. It is not that great of a picture though. I was more concerned with looks than I was with functionality, which is why I chose 10" wide rims over 8".

    oh i see it now... got to look closer.

    I want hooks but i've seen too many videos of bumbers getting yanked off. How easy is it to put some of these on the frame or tow package. I want em on the frame but don't want to weld globs ontop of globs.

    15x8's will help keep your beads when you are aired down offroad. There are lots of pics of mine and other trucks with 15x8's and 35-37" tires in my sig link.

    The white wagons are 3" offset , the steel and chrome are 3 1/2"offset

    The only thing I would change is tires with actual tread would be nice:rotfl:

    Here are some pics of my K5 with both combinations you asked for. The top one has 35"x12.5"x15" Dunlop Mud Rovers mounted on a 15x10 Centerlines. The bottom is the same K5 with my trail tires, 35"x12.5"x15" Goodyear MTR's mounted on a 15x8 Rock Crawler wheel. Both wheels have 3 5/8" back space.

    I like to run a narrow (8") wheel on the trail, because the tire seems to tuck up into the wheel well a little better. In my experience, a narrow wheel seems to hold the bead better at low tire psi. Hope it helps.

    i knowthese are only 33"s. but close. first is 33x12.50 on 15x8, second is 33x13.50 on 15x10. i like how the 8" wheels tuck in the fenders better, but i notice that the sidewall roll over easier on the street. makes the truck feel like its got even more body roll. i think the 8" hold the beads better, but i've talked to a few guys who say the 10" rim hold it better causs the sidewall isnt sucked in distorting the relationship between tire and wheel. i've never blown a bead on either tire so no real world experience here.

    if i drove alot on the highway and like to drive " spiritedly",i'd get 10" rims. if you want your tires to tuck in better and just cruise w/ your truck on road, get 8"

    My opinion, I think it depends on what you want your function to be. I went with a 15x10 on my 33x12.50s on my 85, its my daily driver, and I never air down my tires and I see more pavement.. better tire wear on 10s. But if you want to air down your tires for offroad, I'd agree with the other guys on the 8s.
