Roughly:

295/75R15 is a tiny bit bigger than 32", while 295/70R15 is closer to 31". 285/75R15 would be right around 11.25" x 32". These are just the numbers - you need to look to see whether anyone is making tires in those exact sizes.

I don't think there is a need to start a new thread for all your tire questions. Just keep adding to one of the others you already started. It will make it easier for you to refer back to what other people have said.

I see you are still stressing about tire size LOL. You are talking 1/8's of an inch when you compare all the tires you have. Pick a tire you like and get the appropriate size (roughly, its not an exact science) and enjoy. If you are afraid that 32's will be too big go with the 265's but if you want to stuff the wheel well (will look better IMO) go with the 285's.

The size difference will not be that noticeable unless you are holding a tape measure up to the tire.

You're not going to find a metric tire that is 32x11.50R15. The metric value of 32x11.50R15 is 292/74R15, which doesn't exist. Also, I'm not even sure manufacturers make metric tire sizes for 15" wheels, everything I've ever seen for 15" wheels has been in inches.

Thus the post above yours is sold advice:
