    I put my friends black rims with regular size 235/75R/15 tire on my explorer just to see how it looked, and I decided I really like it, but I would like to go with a larger tire so I actually had a couple questions.

    1) How would a 15x8 rim fit?

    2) What is the largest size tire I would be able to run without any rubbing?

    I'll try to post a pic of it to see what you all think, any feedback would really help, thanks!
