Question Have rims, just quick question.

So I just got a set of Prime rims from a friend. They have a multiple lug pattern which is nice. They are 15 inches tall. They are 7 inches wide. and have a Negative 14 offset.

Here is my question.

If I want 31's what is the other number that goes with that? like 31 X 50? 31 X 75?

Sorry I know there is probably a chart and Im just being lazy but no company I call will give me a straight answer.

if the tires have the 31 on them instead of the 285 for example it will say 10.5 or 10.50. there are no tires with the size 31 50

265/75/15 is about the same as a 31x10.5x15 and is the biggest you should go on a 7" wide 15" rim... a 305 wouldn't fit right on a 7" wide rim, you would need a 10" wide rim.
