What is the closest size tire to what I want?

I am thinking of trying a set of Dick Cepek mud country tires.I was looking for a 32x11.5x15.
The only size close is either a 32x 12.5 x15 OR 32x 10.5 x15
Which of these 2 sizes would be better? Thanks

It would be dependent on what your use for them is and what you want them for. Do you want a wider looking tire or a skinny pizza cutter? Do you want to dig through snow or have a wide footprint on rocks? It's all up to what your use for them will be.

Well a 15x8 will work for either, so you're good there. The 10.5 might give you a little better gas mileage on the road than the 12.5 would. But the 12.5 would look more aggressive (if that matters to you).

Are you running the stock wheels? Do you have a lift? There are a lot of variables that go into deciding what you need.

Well just make sure the steelies have the correct backspacing for a 12.5 tire and go for it! It should look nice and aggressive. That's what I would do.
