Default Tire question

What does the middle number mean in the following?
32X11.5X15 I know what 32 and 15 stand for, but the 11.5 has me confused. Does that mean I'd need new rims if I'm running 31X10.5X15's?
Thanks...

That middle number is the width. Depending on the width of your wheels, you may need new ones if you're set on running that size. Some of the other guys on here should be able to tell you what width tire will fit on what width wheel.

you'll be fine w/ stock wheels, thats what I run right now, the 32x11.5's might rub the bottom corner of your flairs if you aren't running any lift.

I have a 2 inch lift which is why I want to go from 31's to 32's when its tire changing time...
