Default tire dilemma

So i need new tires for my truck and roaming craigslist i came across 5 cooper discoverer atr's with only 1000 miles on them. They look brand new. Here is the kicker. I just bought a set of 16" fx4/edge rims from richardhoward on saturday with intentions of putting new tires on those rims. But i found this new set of coopers plus the spare today and they are 31x10.5x15 They come with toyota 6 lug rims for 400.00. SO do i buy these new tires with the yota rims and turn around and sell the rims for lets say 100-125 and buy a set of 15 inch rims and use the 16" for winter rims and some cheap tires for them? I am confused as to what i should do. I also have the ugly 16" rims that are on my truck that i can also sell for 90-100 on craigslist IDK IDK.. Ive been looking for these Discoverer atr for awhile and unfortunately there 15"

----------

I really want to use these new wheels i just got but the price of these 5 tires is so cheap

this is what i am thinking as well. If i decided to buy the 5 tires with yota rims. Ill be able to sell The yota and my stock rims. Lets just say i get 100 for each set of rims, Id think that would cover the cost of some 15
