Default 10" vs 12"

Would a 10" wide wheel to a 12" wide wheel make much difference in the actual size of the tire?
I'm trading my current wheels for a set of super swamper trxus mt's and I want the new set of wheels to make them tire be as wide as possible and stick out good. The only problem is how much a 12" wide wheel actually costs compared to 10"
Both the 10 and 12 have a 4" backspacing.

Default The width

Well what size tire are you going to run ?

Food for thought the wider you go the shorter the tire can get ..

And you might want to check with local laws on how much tire can protrude past the side of the truck .

certian size tires have certian size rim requirements, you can go too wide or too narrow and this could effect safety

33 12.5
I decided on a 10" wide wheel simply because I found the same wheels I have now, but brand new and in a 10 wide.
And the laws around here say the tire can't stick out at all, but if you know the right people..
