    Are you sure a 15 inch wheel will clear the calipers?

    its the stock wheel. Its a 16" but the tire is 15 so it can go deeper into the wheel

    thats why I want to know the hard language for defining this tire

    Uhhhhhhh, you're either confused, or you're throwing us off track with too many typos.

    But NO 15" tire WILL EVER fit on your stock 16" rim.

    15" or 16" is the diameter of the rim, and the INNER diameter of the tire must match or the tire won't fit on the rim.

    WHEN I GO TO THE SPECS FOR THE TIRE THE 31 IS THE TIRE HEIGHT THE 10.5 IS THE WIDTH AND THE 15 IS THE INSIDE OF THE CIRCLE

    WHEN I LOOK UP WHAT SIZE RIM IT FITS ON IT SAIS 16"

    IF YOUR RIM IS 16" TALL AND YOUR TIRE IS 16" ON THE INSIDE OF THE CIRCLE THEN THE TIRE IS TOO BIG FOR THE RIM

    FIRESTONE SPELLS THEIR TIRES OUT IN PLAIN ENGLISH GIVING THE EXACT MEASUREMENTS OF THE TIRE WHERE AS EVERYONE ELSE SAYS 265/75/16

    THE 16 IN THAT CASE WOULD NOT BE THE INSIDE CIRCLE OF THE TIRE BUT THE RIM THAT IT FITS ON

    HAVING SAID THAT THE ACTUAL MEASUREMENT OF THAT CIRCLE WOULD BE 15"

    BY THE WAY CAN SOMEONE ANSWER MY QUESTION

    285/70/18

    *The first number is the nominal width of the tire in mm, approximately 285 mm at the widest point.

    *The second number is indicates that the height of the sidewall of the tire is 70% of the width

    *The third number is the rim size.

    Your tire is somewhere near a 270/75/15, 265/80/15. This is a rough estimate. The rims size is wrong for your truck!

    Where on that link should I be reading? Because I am really interested in learning how a 15" tire will fit on a 16" rim.

    You are being very ignorant. A 15" rim will not fit a 6 lug Tacoma and a tire that ends in /15 will not fit onto a 16" rim. Everyones mentioned this numerous time as well as given you great feedback thus far!
