-->15x8\"s on CJ-7<--

I am getting ready to install my 4" skyjacker lift with 1/2" shackle lift and 1" body lift with 35x12.50\15 BFG MT's
I just bought my wheels and the tire store told me to go with 15x8 rather than 15X10 (eagle 589) so I bought the 15x8's My question is will the 15x8 work or are there any problems I may encounter.

They'll be fine, in fact, they're a better rim than the 10" for wheeling. I'm going to 7" rims on my 33x12.5" Swampers for off roading as the 8" ones are a little beat up from the rocks.

JEEPN is right. The 8" ones will retain a bead better when aired down.

The 15x8 is considered about the best wheeling wheel. It holds the bead much better and is a lot harder to damage.
