32x11.50x15 will fit on your OEM 15x7 rims and not rub your leaf springs. The same tire and wheel set up will rub your lower control arms in the front badly when turning.

Depending on how bad they rub on your LCAs you might be able to add some washers to your steering stops and that will fix the rubbing, of course you will loose turning radius. Should be able to find a write on google about that.

Honestly though, with stock rims, I doubt it will work because of their backspacing.

You will lose a lot of turning radius. I ended up having to buy just 2 wheel spacers for the front wheels as the rubbing was that bad and I couldn't afford 4 at the time. The rear tires will be VERY close to your leaf springs too. Not rubbing but, very close. You will probably want o get 1.5" wheel spacers for all 4 wheels eventually. I did. I ended buying the other 2 when I bought 33x12.50x15s for my next set of tires. DEFINITELY had to have the spacers all the way around for those tires.
