your gonna get pro's and cons from both sides of the coin.
I personaly would stay with 8" rims with a 12" tire. Dont think a tire that wide would justify a wider rim and when you air down to say 10lbs or so the 10 " rim will have more of chance to slip the bead.
No saying that I ran 33x12.50 trxus on a 10" rim at 8psi and never broke a bead.

I run BFG A/T 33x 12.5 on a 8 inch rim at 9 psi and have no trouble with a bead at all.
