Rim Size for 12.5 Wide Tire

What rim width should I run with a 12.5 inch wide Tire. The reason I am asking Is becuase im running a 8 inch wide rim on a 12.5 wide inch tire is that right or should I go up to 10 inch wide for my next rims.

It all depends on what you wheel and the look you want. If you want it to look wide and beefy a 15x10. If you wheel in the rocks more times than not, Get 15x8 with 3.75 or less BS. IMO i would run the 15x10's no matter what, Looks better with a wider stance and on road driving is a little better. The only down fall is if you want to air down to less than 10psi consistently. I say consistent as i have been at 8psi and never popped a bead, But not to say i wasn't lucky.

I am running 8" and like it. Seems to keep the tire on the rim pretty well. I run 9-10 psi off road and haven't lost a bead yet.
