You can fit 32x11.50's on the 15x8's with slight rub at full-lock. It will rub on the frame in front of the axle. I had a '99 CC 4x4, that had this problem. I just made some steering stops that prevented this. It worked great, and the bigger tires looked better as well. I put the same wheel/ tire configuration on my 2000 QC, and had no rubbing. Go figure.

thanks for the sites. I've been checking them out. I saw some Swampers 32x10.5x15 radial TSL and Thornbirds 30x11.5x15 that look pretty nice. Can anyone tell me how these tires are, as far as tread wear and handling?

They wear and handle about the same as any other aggressive mud tire. Not as good as an AT on road but much better off road.

Hi Hawkeye I was checking out your site again and looking at the pics of the tires. In 1 pic it says 32x11.5x15 on factory rims then in the other two tire pics it says 33". Did you have the same set of tires in two sizes or was it a typo? I just want to be sure that the 32x11.5 will defintely fit on the stock wheels. Oh bye the way about how much will it throw off the speedo? Thanks Hed

I did have 32x11.50's on the factory 15x7's. When I put my lift on I went to 33x12.50's on some American Racing 15x8 rims. 32x11.50's will fit on the factory 15x7's or 15x8's.

Hedlock,
Go to dakota-truck.net and use the tire/ wheel calculator. This will tell you how much your speedo will be off.
