The 265/75/16 is going to be stretched on a 10" wide wheel. That tire is only 10.5"(someone correct me if I'm wrong on that) wide and the wheel is 10" wide...not a good combo.

in not sure what size tire to fit, but i would go with an 8 inch rim if it were me. no need to stretch a tire onto a rim that is wider than it needs

pretty sure that the closest equivelent for a 32x11.50R15 would be a 265/75R16. the 265 will be a bit narrower though...

edit: a 265/75R16 converts to be 31.6" tall, and 10.4" wide.
