If your getting fabtech spinles, tires/rim combo wont fit with a stock wheel.

That is all..

I wouldn't run a tire that tall, that wide, on a wheel that small and that narrow...

Yes, unless you are offroading ONLY, you're going to wear that tire BAD in the center. I had that problem with 15x7's with only a 31 and my tire guy told me at least as 15x8, which I went and got.

I'd say 15x10 for that tire if you are going to drive it a lot on the street.

And I don't think 15" is the "small" part, just the width you're running would be disadvantageous.

I ran 33x12.50s on 15x7s for a couple months before I got my 15x8's. I think you'll be alright if you don't do alot of heavy off roading for a while. You might have some funny road manners because the tire is a little taller it might feel like a shimmy if your on a bumpy and windy road. Just air down a bit and you should be alright for about a month like ya said.

youll be fine with 35s on 7s for a while. its just more stress on the sidewall and if you take it easy, youll be smooth saillin
