cranking the t-bars a little you can run

32x11.5x15 on 15"

and some 265x75x16 on 16

also here is more sizes quoted out of the tire size chart that is a "sticky" thread in wheels and tires...

I replaced mine after 30k cause the cheap factory shocks where cupping my tires. I went with A/T shocks front and rear.
