Why are you worried about needing such a narrow tire? why not go with a 33x12.5? of you could get a 32x11.5, both of which are readily available for a 15 inch rim...
Agreed, Wow this thread has lots a post with NO info lol. Im currently getting rid of my 16's for sum 15's.

i really like the black wheel with a sim beadlock ring....aluminum wheel...I cant fit a 33 1250 without lift and Im not doing more than the torsion bars I have now...plus There are alot more tires availble with a 16 (in my opinion) that are sized right and look good

what about getting the 15x8 with some 31x10.50s or even 32x11.50s. that way when you lift it it makes it easier and cheaper to get some 33s. just my thoughts. look to the future, ya know.
