Default 15x8 or 15x10 rim size question.

Very soon im going to purchase new tires (unknown which yet) but they will be 33x12.5x15. I was wondering which rim width would look better with those tires and which would cause more clearance issues. My truck currently has a 3 inch spindle lift with cranked tbars and 3 inch leafs in the rear. Again just want to know if my current 15x8 rims will be fine or should i get 15x10's. And if anyone has pics that would be appreciated as well. Thanks in advance.

spindles can snap with to much pressure, ie flexing or god forbid a wreck
