Question Stock Wheel Question

I'm thinking about getting, either 32x11.50R15 or 33X10.50R15 on my truck with a 3 inch body lift. I was just wondering if I could fit either of those tires on my stock 15x7 rim?

you could but I wouldn't run the 33x10.5 they will look like pizza cutters.... get the 32x11.5 but that will be pushing the limit so if you off-roading it would not be safe at all...

I'm going to go against the grain here and tell you that you'll be fine with the 32x11.50's on a 7" wide wheel. I have the same width tire on my 16x7's and I've wheeled them with no issues.

maybe I wrote that wrong, but an 11.5 inch tire will be just fine on a 7" wide wheel, it's not ideal, but it will be fine....

It'll be fine. I run 33x12.50's on the stock 15x7's. Have been for years no problems on or offroad.
