It depends. If you're trying to have the least amount of footings, then you'll need heavier lumber. And vice versa.

Which is more important? If a third footer in the center of that 10' run is going to be an eyesore, or the customer just doesn't want it, then you'll need a 2x10 or 2x12 for your rim joist.
