I have 33X12.5 on 15X10.... I usually air down to 15psi !!! Of course I have only wheeled it on sand hills in the desert here.

What problems if any should I expect in rock or mud terrains???

Your question was "How do 35's look on 15x10 inch rims?" and you asked for pics.

Either get a pair of purpose-built beadlocks or go with 8" wide rims. I run my 35x12.5x15 KM2's at 8psi most of the time on the rocks, on my 15x8 MT Classic II's, and I've never lost a bead (knock on wood) even though I've had some raised eyebrows from a spotter or two expecting to see them torn off. Holding steady though

I do appreciate the info, its looking like i'll be saving up for 15x8's. but i may buy the 15x10's and flip them they are that good of a deal. 4 Bran new mickey thompson classic locks with rings, center caps, lug nuts, and 4 33x12.5 pro-comp MT with 3/4 tread for $500.

Check the approved specs for the tire, but usually on a 13.50" the narrowest you should run is a 9". If you run the narrower tire you will get funky wear on the street.

If its a deal you can't pass up then go for it. I did the same with 33x12.50 MTR's on ProComps knock off of the MT wheels, and got it for $450 with the tires at about 60%. It does LOOK nice, but I've never aired down past say 15-20 psi just to be safe because looking good may not get you home. Now that I'm in the market for some new MTR's I'm debating going with 33x12.50's and picking up a used set of 15x8 steelies given the fact I can afford to wheel it more (meaning I will need to be able to air down to 8-10 psi). I guess it comes down to economics in the end and the chance someone whats to get rid of some 15x8 wheels.

15 psi is barely airing down, I wouldn't expect any problems at that high of an air pressure. For a 33" tire, it's more common to air them down to somewhere around 10-12 psi.

When you have a choice, buy American made.

I run 35-12.50's on a 15x10" wheel. I have dropped it to 8psi and had no problems. I dont usually go that low as there is no reason around Iowa. But i usually put them at 10-12psi and they do great. 8" or 10" is up to what the owners wants to run. All tire dealers i have seen recommend a 8.5 to 11" wheel for 12.50's, But 8" works well for many. Good luck either way.

MOPAR!

well i've decided to buy them after all, if they don't work out for me i'm pretty sure i can get my money back, and 33's will be easier on the jeep untill I can regear this fall.

Ok I bought the rims and tires, and have decided that the Wide look is not for me at all, now to decide between rims and 35's are there any advantages to running 16's instead of 15's?

No, especially since you will find a better selection of 15" wheels and tires that usually cost less too.

I didn't think so. Prices are definately better, no just to decide what tread will fit my needs the best.
