Can someone post pics?

I was wondering if 15x8 soft 8's would look right with 33x12.50's and extended fender flares, I think I wanna run skinnier wheels instead of 15x10's

15x8 is the recomended wheel size for 33x12.5s, the 15x10 wheel will not hold the bead as well when aired down offroad. Are you just wanting to see a 33x12.5" tire on a 15x8" wheel? Flares size plus wheel backspacing will have a lot to do with how far the tire sticks out if thats what you want to see.

I have 33x12.50s on 15x8 soft 8s with 3.75 back spacing and Sahara flares (same as rubicon flares, 1 inch wider than stock, but not 6 inch flares by any means)
