Rim Size?

Im looking at getting the cragar soft 8's, I was wondering which size I should get?
Im planning on going with 33x12.5 tires would the 15x8 or 15x10 be better?

15x8, less chance of losing a bead when aired down.

My thoughts, exactly.

I have a question. Why recommend 15x8 tires. If he gets rims for 33x12.5 tires isn't he then fine?

Are you guys saying that 15x8 airs down better than other tire and rim setup??

Or what am I not understanding here?

If you have a narrower rim your less likely to when you air down to have a bead pop off. In running 35/12.5/15 with my stock rims and I can ride at 6-8 psi and not loose a bead. I actually had a tire blow out on me on my way home from work and I drove the 4 mile ride(very slowly) and made it home with out breaking the bead
