Default Downgrading Wheel Size???

Hey guys so I've been looking for BFG's 32/11.5/16 tires which they don't seem to make, so now I want to downgrade rim size to 15's because BFG only makes 32/11.5/15 which that's what I want is this safe? And I think Cherokees started out as 15's for the factory rim size

Thanks!

stock rim size for the xj is a 15. i dont see where it would be a problem downgrading wheels. i dont plan to go over 15" anyway. i've always hated big wheels

Look into the 265-75-16 that would roughly be the 32-11.5 you are looking for. You could even step up to the 285-75-16

There is also 235/85/16 which is a narrow 32.
