Why don't you keep the 15's and put some 32x11.5's on them? They're a heck of a lot cheaper than 16" metric tires, but still probably more than the treadwrights. Personally, if I put steelies on my rig, I'd get 15's.

Do the 15's fit over your WJ's calipers?

the boxes were real hard to open, and got ripped to shreds in the process. i think itll be a pain to send them back.
plus one has a decent scuff on it :[

The 15" will fit but the resulting clearance may not be up to your liking. I bought a single 15" and found that I only had about 1/8" clearance between the caliper and the rim. I settled on 16" and gave the 15" rim away. Many of the the guys here are running the 15" soft 8's without incident.

Not to mention, they will probably make you pay the shipping to send them back.

The treadwright guard dogs run big anyway. I think you will be just as happy with some 31/10.5/15's
