    15x8 vs 15x10

    ok jeep guru's, I am getting ready to purchase some rims for the heep. Question I am asking is what is the difference between 15x8 and 15x10. other than 2".
    I have 15x7 right now and my tires look tall
    running procomp 35/12.5X15
    looking at 3.75-4" back spacing
    I am also worried that 10" wide rims will rub... remember we are placing these under a YJ

    a learning experience is one of those things that says, you know that thing you just did...don't do that again.

    The 8" would be better for your application. The 8" will keep the tire on the rim better at low pressures, and as you said, less chance of rubbing. I ran 15x8 with 33 and 35x12.5 tires for years and they worked great.

    For wheeling purposes, the skinny wheel will always work better. It will have better bead retention and the edges of the wheel will be better protected by the tire. For boulevard cruising and looks, the wider wheel would be better.

    I'm running 15x10x3.75 b.s. Wheels on my renegade. Tires are 35x12.5x15. They rub on full turn with bump steer stops turned out. Like everyone saying 8'' is happy medium.
