Default Max tire size I can have?

I have 15x8 rims. I know 31x10.5x15 tires will fit, but will 32x11.5x15 fit? I think thats kinda pushing the width limit

Is it possible to trim, or would it be rubbing on the actual springs? I'll most likely just end up going with 31's.

Best way to know if a tire will fit a rim is to check manufacturer's specs. For example, for BFG A-T's:

32x11.5x15 will fit on an 8" rim.
