16X8 or 16X10???

Question, I currently have 16x8 Rubicon rims with 285-75-16 KM2s on them, looking to go to a black rim, soft 8 or something, anyone have a pic or advice on whether to go 16x8 again or go 16X10???

It is harder to clear taller tires on wider rims then it is on narrower rims...that being said, I like the look of the wide stance and wide tire look that the right tire with a x10 wheel gives you.

I have a 4" lift and also have 1.25" spacers if I needed them so I dont think i will have any clearance problems anywhere, I like the wide look of a 10" rim I think

If you get new wheels with 4" or less backspacing,you don't need the spacers.
8" wide wheels with 3.75" backspacing.




Same wheels in 10" wide.

If you are trying to clear as tall a tire as possible without rubbing, a narrower rim will clear a tire easier than a wider one...turn your steering wheel all the way to the right, now go look at the front passenger tire, if you have a wider rim it will it will throw the tire more into the flare/fender because it is hanging farther off of the axle.
