    I've done alot of searching but still haven't found any concrete information about the 32x11.5x15 tires on an 01 doublecab. I got new 15x10 wheels also with 3.74 backspacing. I've asked around and most people say that an 11.5 wide tire will fit on a 10 inch wide wheel but are there any problems that might occur with this setup?

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    I wouldn't put a 11.5" on a 10" rim I have 12.5's on a 10" rim and it bulges out the tire so an 11.5" would be pretty bad. But if that's the look your going for it will work.

    I just don't want to have to cut too much. I've decided on BFG AT's just what size is the question. Didn't know picking tires would be this difficult haha

    for 11.5 wide tires a 8" wide rim would fit better. Better chance of rubbing with a wider rim as well.

    A 15x10" tire is a bit too large for a 32x11.50 tire.

    I've run 32x11.50 on stock 15X7 wheels. I had to run a lower tire pressure to ensure the tread wore evenly. A lot of shops won't put an 11.50 tire on a 7" wheel. This was on a 96 tacoma with only 2" lift.

    An 8" wide wheel is much better for an 11.50 or 12.50 wide tire. In fact, 8" wide rim is IDEAL. I've run 33x12.50's on the jeep for years. It's a standard combo with 33" tires.

    those wheels are gonna be too wide for the 11.50s. Personally I wouldn't use them with the 12.50's either. You'll need to do some substantially trimming to keep them from rubbing.

    Your best bet is to sell those wheels and pick up some 8" wide wheels and then I would go with the 32x11.50's if it were me.

    im thinkin those wheels are going to be to wide for an 11.5.you can put a 12.5 on them and have no troubles assuming you are lifted and dont mind doing some trimming to make enough room. if your curious as to what it may look like on your truck in my gallery you can find pics of the 33/12.5/15 i had on my truck,the wheels were 15x10 with 3.6'' BS.
