Default Will these fit on my rim?

I'm looking at buying new tires for my 1998 GMC Jimmy. I have been looking and i'm thinking about ordering these....

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....es&place=6


Does anybody know if I would have a problem fitting and 11.5" wide tire on the stock rim? If not where could I get a set of Cragars or something that the tires would fit nice on?

I would appreciate any feedback at all.

Thanks

stock rims are 15x7, and safe range is +-4' from rim-tire. So largest you should go is 11 inches....THEREFORE...no, you can't put an 11.5' wide tire on a stock rim safely. On top of that....you need ~4' lift to clear32's.

awesome tires though

There are some folks that have put 12.5" wide tires on the stock rims and say they have had no problems. Very few shops will mount them for you but I'm sure if you choose to go this route you'll be able to find someone to do it.

I was also looking at a pro comp 32 by 11.5 all terrain tire...Would I have a problem fitting them on the stock rim? Oh and I DO have 4 inches of lift on the Jimmy.

I thought you were selling your jimmy? If you are keeping it you are going to need new rims for the 32s. Oh and for every one else here is how I know about his truck.

Those should work, but you might have to do a bit of trimming so they don't rub. I am planning on bumping up to 32s after the new shackles.
