you wil want a 15X8 rim the 15 is the diameter (you got a R15 so this is the size you need) and the 8 is how wide it is, for a 12.50 in wide tire a 8 inw ide rim is best but ten is fine too but will be more expensive, so those are what you need, then next thing is the backspacing you will need either 3.75" or 4.0" of backspacing so that there is enough room between the inside of the tire and the wheel well, since the tires are wider than stock they need to be puched out away form the hub by that much

btw whats ur price range im sure we can help you find some sweet looking ones in ur range
