quick tire question

My roommate just got a set of Soft 8's (15X8.) He has a spare set of tires that are to be 32X12.5... I think those are too wide to fit... is this true?

32x12.50 will be fine on 15x8 wheels. A 12.5" wide tire is fine on 15" wheels, most offroaders running 33x12.50 and 35x12.50 tires run them on 15x8 wheels as well.

While I've never seen a 32x12.50 tire he won't have any problems with them on the 8" rims.
