That is the size of the rim. A 15x8 rim is 15" in diameter and 8" wide. Based on that comment (I'm not trying to be rude here), I would suggest doing a little more research on this topic as it has been brought up multiple times and learn what options you have. Sometimes just because it looks good in our head doesn't mean it will be practical for YOUR needs, or more importantly, your abilities. I would also consider the cost of these items vs the budget you have. Are you going to put the lift (do you have means/space/knowledge) or take it to the shop? How are these bigger tires going to affect your everyday driving... are you willing to spend a little extra on gas? Just some food for thought.
