Default What Size wheel for a 31x10.50x15 tire

I have BFG 31's on my stock Z71 wheels, which are 15's. I want to buy the DC-1 wheels. Which size wheel is best for the 31's....15x8 or the 15x10. The lug pattern is 6-5.5...right?

Thanks in advance.

15x8 is the best the 15x10 will make the tire baloon out and look skinny at the tread and really fat at the wheel. 6 on 5.5 is correct

The factory Z71 wheels are 15x7 so 15x8 will just spread the sidewall a little wider than what you have right now. Should be fine. I'm running what is essentially a 33x12.50 tire on a 16x8 wheel. It's not too narrow, but is on the narrow side of the range. Keeps the rim inside the plane of the sidewall and protects the rims offroad.
