Default What size rim width should i go with?

Im looking at some 15 inch rims to put on my ranger and im trying to figure out what size width i should go with. Two options

15x8
http://www.ebay.com/itm/15500-01-Rug...2ae229&vxp=mtr

15x10
http://www.ebay.com/itm/15500-02-Rug...0b62f6&vxp=mtr

i like the look of the rims sticking out and i already have 1 inch spacers lying around but does anybody have any preference on width of wheels (pros/cons) and like what tires fit on each of the above widths.

Thanks guys looking to upgrade soon so please help

The part of the tire by the Rim is almost as wide and the top of the tire. Looks sorta funky
