32 x 11.5 tires on a 15x7 wheel?

I am getting ready to pull the trigger on a 2.5" OME conversion lift install on my '86 laredo. The tires I think I wanna go with are BFG all terrains 32 x 11.5 x 15. The manufacture recommends a wheel width of atleast 8 inches. Has anyone put this size tire on a 15x7"? I can go with a 15x8 procomp chrome wagon wheel but would prefer to stay as stock as possible. I currently have the original chrome wagon wheels installed. Any suggestions are appreciated.

I think you'll be fine, only because BFG is false advertising the size of their tires.

I have the same 32"x11.5" BFG AT tire you are considering. Their actual measured size, on 15" x 8" wheels, is 31" x 10". I like the tire, but I'm miffed they are no where close to the advertised size.

BTW, that's the Warden's hand in the pic. My fingernails aren't nearly as pretty.

Billygote-

I've run 32 x 11.5 BFG MTs on 15x7's for years with plenty of offroad action. Never had an issue.
