What size wheels?

I have a set of 15x7 stock steelies, and I actually kinda like them. I might keep them and paint them black, but I just don't know what size tires I'd be able to fit on them. How wide of a tire would I be able to put on a 7 wide rim? I can get a pic of them, if that'd help. At least so you'd know what rims I'm talking about.

you can install some 33x10.5x15 tires on them. but you need some wheel spacers then.
12.5 is too wide for a 7" rim in my opinion.

So I can safely fit up to a 10.5 on my rims?

These are the rims I have, just for clarification:



They are 15x7, right? Correct me if I'm wrong.

My Jeep is an '02 TJ. The tires on it now are 27s (I know, ). I'm just not sure of the width of the rim itself.
