What size rim to use?

Hello all, I have a question I thought I would be able to figure out by myself, but no. I have 10 inch aluminum (35 X 12.50 X 15 inch size) wheels now and I'm about to buy some steel wheels to replace them. They stick out of the wheel wells about three inches, I was wondering should I stick with 10 inch or 8 inch to bring the wheels in more? And would that make the scrubing I get all full lock turning better? The truck only see's occasional dirt 95% is back and forth to work. THANKS for your input.

Re: What size rim to use?

Wide rims look better and handle better but you throw crap all over the side of your truck. I am wondering about rims myself because i have a set of wild country AT's 255-85-16 with about 25% tread i want to run through the winter then its a new set of 33x12.50x16's but i am wondering if the 255's will fit a 10" rim or if i need to drop to an 8" to be able to run them. (have not bought wheels yet still running 16.5s [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] )
