    i would only run 10 1/2 inch wide tires on 15x7s, i think 12 1/2 will fit but i think 10.50s would be the safer route

    10.50's are probably the 'standard' for that wheel size.

    When I owned my 96 tacoma, I had 32x11.50's on my stock rims (15x7). I had to run my air pressure lower to ensure the tread wore evenly across.

    If you go wider than that, you'll have to run your tire pressure even lower.

    So - If you don't wanna have to worry about tread wear,on other than recommended tire pressure - then I'd stick with the 10.50's.

    No, the 225/75/15 is about a 9" width
    The tire calculator is at the bottom of "mods and tutorials" drop down menu at the top.....just under the TacomaWorld banner.

    That's what the first generation trucks came with from the factory - so Yes.
