15x8 vs 15x10 rims for 35 12.5 15 tires

Which of these two size rims will hold a bead better at low pressure? Does anyone have an opinion? I have 35 12.5 15 BFG KM2.


Canada is awesome

Been running 7.5" Alcoas for over 13 years. It was a good choice.

The narrower wheel will also be tucked within the sidewalls better and won't scrape against rocks as easily.

2000 TJ, 4.0L, 4" suspension lift, 35s, rear D44 and front HP30 both with ARBs. AX15, 4:1 T-case.

I was really happy when I upgraded from 10" wide steelies to 8" wide alloys.

You're not even really airing down until you're below 15 psi.

When you have a choice, buy American made.
