"these" being a tire sized 255/75R17

Also what is the difference between 32x11.5xR15 and 255/75R17? I see the obvious 15 versus 17 difference but I don't really know what that means...

Any thoughts?

Ravines are not 17" wheels, so you will not be able to mount a 255/75/17 tire on them.

255/75/17 converts to 32.1" x 10".

The other obvious difference is 255/75/17 is for a 17" wheel; 32 x 11.50 R15 is for a 15" wheel.
