My daughters 1998 XL has 31's on 15 inch rims (tires are 31x10.5x15 BFG AT/KO's) and though they rub a bit they've been doing it now for like 4 years or something, lol. The truck and the tires have survived.
She's got a 2.5 liter 4 popper and the standard gears with a 5 speed manual. It's not fast, but it's been reliable and the gas mileage is pretty good.
For sure, you could do 30x9.5x15. I definitely get 15" rims though. I believe those 14's are 14x6 rims and they are tiny.
