    what size tires. and for looks or wheeling?? personaly i like anything in a 12.50 and wider on a 10" wheel. or if it's gonna be flexing a lot a 12.50 on a 8" wheel is good because it's a little narrower and will "stuff" better in the wheelwell. but for looks a 10" will give it that wide, mean look. if its anything smaller than 12.50 wide, 8"

    That all depends on the size tire you plan to run. It also has a little to do with how you want it to look.

    anything larger than 12.50 wide you would most likely be better off with a 10in or larger rim.

    Anything 12.50 wide and smaller on 10in rims takes a little more pressure normally to keep the tire riding right and you also can't air down quite as much.

    Right now I have 32x 11.50 on 10in rims and it makes them appear slightly bigger than they really are but are actually a little shorter than if they were on an 8in rim.

    Hope that helps...
