I believe all '91s came with 15x7s. I pretty sure that 31X10.5-15 are the largest you'd want to mount on those rims.

The stock wheels are 15"x7".

I ran 31x10.50's on the stock wheels and they worked fine. You could get the 32x11.50 on the 7" wheels, I think there have been a few on this site that have done it.

If you go to 32x11.50's, are you changing the gears also? If not, the stock gearing will produce a significant loss of performance. It's harder on the motor and transmission also, not to mention gas mileage.

You can fit 33x12.50 on 15x7 wheels no problem.

Technically Velveeta isn't REALLY cheese... it's a cheese food...
The stuff that other cheeses eat... I guess.
