Tires and stretching

So currently, I have 33x12.50 r15 toyo mt on stock ranger wheels which are about 9 wide, I found wheels that are 15x15 but want to keep my tires, is a 12.50 wife tire big enough to stretch into a 15 wide wheel? Not worried about rubbing, I have wheel spacers and life already.

It might, but would look pretty goofy

Pictures of 12.5" tires on 12" to 15" wide wheels here:

I don't think you would get a very tight seal

If do any offroading your chances of popping a bead would be almost guaranteed. Hell, take a turn at 25 and you'll probably pop a bead. If I were the tech at the tire shop I wouldnt even attempt to mount them for you...
