right now im running stock rims i believe 15x7 w/ 30x9.50 tires. would 15x8 or 15x10 look right? can i see some pics of these different combos with this size tire or a bit bigger? I would like to get rims some day but im not sure what size i want.

If you stick with a 30x9.5 tire you can't go wider than a 15x8 wheel.
I have 15x10's with 31x10.5 and that is pushing it for a 10.5" wide tire let alone a 9.5" wide tire. Also with a 10" wide wheel you will have trim the plastic trim on the bottom of the fender and the air dam on the front bumper.
This is a pic of my 31x10.5x15's on my old 15x7 wheels.
The third pic is my 15x10 wheels with the same tires.
I have a simular question. my door panel lists my tires as 235 x 75 r15.
what is on my truck now (by the previous owner) is 255 x 70 r16. Well I am doing a tt, war153, 3"bl and 33" tires. I will be changing out my rims because I want to go black. am still pretty unclear as for tire size and rim size. I was thinking I would be going with 33 x 12.50 x 15 on black 15 x 8 rims. Does this sound about right?
this is on a 97 xlt awd.
I just want to get everything straight before i order it.
