tire/rim size questions

When all is said and done I will have about 2" suspension lift and 2" body lift. The question: what tires and rims? I have the stock 15x7 rims now, so the options:

Get 16" rims (I think they look nicer)
Stay with the 15" rims

Tire size: I want 32", but what would the metric equivilant be for 16" rims, since I havent seen any 32x11.50r16 tires out there?

Stay with the 15" rims. Unless your buying new ones anyway, then get 15x8. Just my opinion.

I dont even think a 32x11.5r16 is made. I was thinkin the same thing for awhile. Even if there is a 32r16 somewhere out there, you'll save money with 15's and you'll have more options for better looking wheels.

I had the same idea for a lift, but I think if i buy new wheels and tires, I'm just gonna get 31s now, maybe a budget boost, I hope it will still look good if I do go with the 31s...
