No, those won't work. You picked out rims that are 16" diameter, and at least the link shows tires that are 15".

Oh. So what size tire would I need to get to fit those rims? Or should I find different sized rims?

You need wheels are tires that are the same rim size. I run 15x8 rims, with 35x12.5r15's.

I'm not going to tell you to run different sized rims, IDC what sized rims you run or what they look like. But they need to match up.

Go with a 265/75/16. Its a 32 inch tire and they have it in the duratracs. Its going to equal out to about 31.5 inches or around there.

Will it fit without much rubbing?

A 31.5" or 32" will not fit without rubbing on just a BB. You're going to either do some major trimming, or run 3.5" of lift and trim the bumpers.

there arent a lot of options tire wise for 16 inch rims. so my suggestion would be to either stick with 15 inch or bump up to 17 inch. personally, i think smaller wheels look better, but its up to you. and i remember reading somewhere recently that metric sized tires are always more expensive.

I would personally stick with the 15 inch. More tire choices, cheaper, and looks better. And yes metric sizes are pretty expensive compared to standard. The 265 tire duratrac is about 20 bucks more than the 31 on tirecrawler.com
