New Wheel Question

Was thinking about getting some new wheels. New one's will be 15x8 with a offset of -12. My tires are 31x10.5x15, I have 1.5-2.0" lift. Will I have any problems with rubbing? What can I expect with this offset? Will this change my ride? Any help would be appreciated.

Close but you should be ok. Ride could be improved with the taller sidewalls. Your transfer case is very sensitive to tire height differences so try to run about the same pressures all around.

Thanks. The store told me to come in and they will mount a 31" KO on the rim and let me see what it will look like on my X. I like the deepness of the 8 over the 7. Was also thinking about a 7 with a +6, but the deepness is not like an 8 with a -13.
