Hello people,Please give me your thoughts.
I have 2'' RE BB w/HD OME shocks on the '03 Rubi and I cant for the life of me figure out which wheel/tire combo to go with. Mainly going for the aggresive look for now untill I pay it down/off. Its either gain 1'' on width(32x11.50) or 2'' on the hieght (33x10.50) and if I go w/11.50 would that require a 10'' wheel or would 8'' be fine. Either will have 3.75'' backspace.

All I can say is that 8" wheel will be fine for either, thats my understanding anyway.

If it were me, I would go with the 32 x 11.50 in an aggressive tread. With only a BB, I think I would hold off on 33's until I lifted higher.

The 32s will have less negative effect on the vehicle's performance since they have a smaller diameter. You aren't really saving any weight by going with a narrower tire, even though it's taller. The 32x11.5R15 is a more standard size and is available in a much broader selection of tire models.

You would want to stick with 8" wide wheel for either of those size tires. I'd actually recommend a 7" wide wheel for the 10.5" wide tires.
