      Ok I am in the market to get some crager soft 8's for my limited 1999 awd ex. I am looking to put Hankook Dynapro atm in a 31x10.50x15 on them. My ex is not lifted and I am looking to get it that nice flush stance with the fenders. I have a few questions though.
      1. What would be a better size 15x10, or 15x8
      2. What bolt pattern and rear spacing would be best.

      Thanks.
