    Depends on how you wheel. I run 'em on 15x8s.

    8-10"

    10" is ideal.

    8" and the tire starts to donut. Poor tire wear. Great for offroading since the rim is protected and far less likely to lose a bead.

    12" and the tire is spread too wide and is hard on the sidewalls. Not to mention the fact it looks retarded and the tire will easily lose bead.
