I just want something wider, I'm not a huge fan of the skinny tires.For off-road/road use, 8” wide rims are fine up to 12.5” wide tires. Your rim will be more susceptible to damage with a 10” wide rim.
How wide are you trying to go? “Skinny” tires are usually 10.5 wide. 12.5 wide are big tires. 12.5 wide tires fit nicely on 8 inch wide rimsI just want something wider, I'm not a huge fan of the skinny tires.

Can you post up a picture of your truck? It might help with suggestions. It’s hard to give advice on good wheels when we don’t have a reference to what would look good.
Awesome rig btw, and I don't think I'd be able to get away with 12.5's without rubbing.12.5" much over 33" they become tall and skinny.

Putting a 10.5" tire on a 10" rim leaves no sidewall protection for the edge of the rim. Might be ok for a street only vehicle, but not advisable for any real wheeling.I'd max out at 10.5
Do they rub on anything?31X10.50 on a stock steel rim widened to 8"View attachment 2887860
A picture won't help, I mean it's torn in pieces really.it depends. What do you want it to do? What do you want it to look like? Do you have a picture of the rig for us to help a little better?
If you want a stock look but with wide tires, you can get OEM rims and widen them, and put hubcaps on.
