10.50 or 12.50 width tires on 15x10 rims.

As the title implies....

I'm going to be installing a 4" suspension lift on my 79 K10 within a month to a month and a half. Along with that lift, of course, are tires.
Right now, I'm leaning more towards 33's (though I understand 35's should fit) because of the extra flex allowed compared to a larger tire.
I am unaware of what the backspacing is right now, but I do know they are 15"x10".
There are some 31x10.50x15 BFG AT's on there right now, so I know 10.50 will work.

I'd like to know which width would be better, 10.50 or 12.50...any suggestions?

id go with the wider ones too, its probably not a huge deal but you do lose a little turning radius with a wider tire

This truck turns like a tank compared to the Jeep I used to have..so turning radius isn't really an issue.
