It's not a question if Wireshark supports 10G traffic. It's more a question if the capture hardware can keep up with 10G.

With a full saturated 10G link capturing direct with Wireshark is not the best way.

Using tools like dumpcap (potentially with BPF filter) make more sense.

Luca Deri gave a nice presentation at Sharkfest last year about high-speed links. Maybe this helps.
