A 15x10" wheel will work fine. For that wide IMO a 15x10"3.75BS minimum. That way you can still air down and they can be used with 12.50's for street.
I ran heavy krawlers for 15k and my front end is still tight. They were on steel 10" fake locks. They are a heavy 35-13.50-15 and i never had a problem. But i also keep good maintenance log. 15.50 is a little extreme on a jeep but it can be done. Be light on the skinny and have a slush fund for broken parts and up-grades.

MOPAR!

A Currie or Savvy tie rod set up and sleeve. The tire is .85 thick itself. With that width you might need a hydro assist ram and ported steering box. The width is what will wear and break parts. You will need stronger front axle shafts and ujoints possibly.
Ball joints eventually but XRF's might hold up good but it all depends on your wheeling style. If its balls out your going to find out a bigger axle is cheaper in the long run. If your easy on the skinny and dont mind pulling cable now and then to save parts it can last. If you do burn up wheel bearing you can get cheap ebay ones for cheap and they are the same as a parts store unit hub. Good luck, You will have to wheel it and find out its weak links.

MOPAR!
