    I think that is up to you man. I got 10 inch wheels, but people told me they were no good when aired down real low. I don't air down too low, so I am not worried about it. Some like to stick with the narrower rims for that and other reasons. Just take the advice people offer and make an informed decision that fits you and your wheeling style.

    i have always run 8" rims with 12.50. Most people say to do that. To be honest a friend runs 10" and airs down to the same psi 10lbs and has not had a problem with popping the bead. If you plan on going lower psi i would vote go beadlocks from the start.

    Get 8" steelies if you want to run low air pressure. 10" is better for tread wear on the street.
