Rim and Tire help Please

Hey!
My brothers Birthday is coming up and I want to do something special to his truck for him because its is completely stock and plain looking. I don't know much about trucks which is why I need peoples help with this!
I recently bought him new "Soft 8 Black Steel Wheel, 15" x 7", 5 on 4.5".
And I am now looking for a 32-33in tire to go with the steel sheels, like I said I don't know much about it but I want to do something special for him. An All Terrain tire is what I am looking to put on it.
Here is a picture of the wheel-

I want to see if someone can link me to a tire 32-33in that will fit the rim listed above.
We are putting a 3in body lift on it and then doing the rims and tires while my brother is out of town for the week.

Get 32x11.5's in either BFG A/T's or Goodyear Duratracs if they have them in that size.

personally i'd go with duratracs. they are great and i love mine.

like mentioned, those 15x7s are gonna limit your tire choices and you might have to live with the pizza cutter look.

I do love pizza. Haha but joking aside can you show me a black tire/rim that is affordable for a college student? I can return these rims.

if you can return them get a larger/wider set. summit sells black rims. i paid $880 for my duras. 265/75r16s at discount tire.

15s are small since every manufacturer is going larger. 17s are the new 15s. i would have went to a larger rim but i liked mine and didn't wanna spend the extra on a set of 17s.

they make soft 8's in a 5x4.5 patter in a 15x8 size. just send those back and get the 8's if you want and they're cheap too.

there are two different backspacing specifications for the 15x8 with our bolt pattern, make sure to get the ones that have 4" of backspacing. the others have 4.75" which will be way too tucked in.

here are the right ones, if you're looking to get the same wheel in a 8" wide
