Question 32x11.5 tires on stock 15" rims?

Hey everyone,

I'm a Journeyman lurker/newbie poster on the board and have a question but first want to say thanks to everyone who takes the time to post here. Ton's of valuable info & often entertaining.


I've got some some Deavers & Donahoes on the way for my 2000 ext. cab TRD 5spd V6 w/ the stock 15" wheels and was looking at maybe upgrading to some 32" tires. That was, until I noticed that every brand I looked at listed a rim width range of 8-10" I'm pretty sure that the stock rims are only a 7" width (?) but I see that other people on the board use the two together. What's the story? Is it something the mfg'er technically doesn't recomend but really isn't an issue, or are there some problems associated with the tire being so much wider than the rim? If it's not really good for the tire and effects the lifespan, I probably wouldn't do it. However, I gotta replace the stock tires soon and don't want to get new 31's & find out I can't stand the look of them w/ the lift. I'm planning on leaving the Donahoes at 2" of lift to keep the ass-end from being too high.

Thanks for any info.

'00 ext. cab TRD 4x4; 3.4L & 5sp.
-Gibson cat-back exhaust
-Grey wire mod
-Deck plate mod
-Amsoil drop-in filter
-Donahoe's up front, Deavers & 5150's in back

Ive got 32x11.50 BFG A/Ts with no lift at all on stock rims and they work fine for me, no problems. Nice beefy look to the truck now.

Cool, thanks for the reply.

I was leaning towards the BFG A/T's myself. Glad to hear that you're not having any problems running the 32's with the stock height. I guess I should definetely be OK clearance-wise with some lift then.

Maybe some others will chime in yet as far as having any issues from this wheel & tire combo. I like the beefy look of it as well, just don't want to have any issues pop up from going outside the recommended rim width specs.

Do you have a lot of issues with rubbing? Because I know a guy who has 31x10.50's and he just bought some 15x8 rims. With just the little bit of width added, he's starting to have issues with rubbing.

Don't worry about treadwear with the stock wheel. I have 72,000 miles on a set of 32x 11.50 Dean (made by Cooper) All Terrains on stock 15 x 7 alloys. Mostly highway miles, but amazing to get that long of wear under any conditions. Tires still have about 5/32 of tread depth in the center of the tire.

I only had one problem with 32's and stock wheels on my 99. It would rub my upper arm sometimes, but it was not noticible at all in the truck. I just put some rust stopper paint on it and it is fine now.

I've got 32 x 11.50 Bridgestone Dueller M/T's on my stock 15" wheels. No problems with the wheel at all, but slight rubbing when I turn and hit a dip just right. They look awesome! I am positive that the 3" lift I am about to add will eliminate the slight rubbing.
