Tires on stock rims

Hey guys I'm making my Sami a thick forest/huntin' truck. I don't need a wide tire going through all those trees, but what's the widest tire that I could put on a stock Samurai wagon wheel?

The wheel measures 15"x5" I think. Would a 31"x10.5" or 30"x9.5" fit?

I am running 30 x 9.50 on the 88 here. They measure like 29.4 inches. I run 18 lbs of air in them and all the tread don't touch the road. Your stock wheels should be 5 1/2 wide.

I have some 32x11.5 BFG's mounted on the stock rims as well, and while they would suck onthe road, they would work in the woods. I am running 32x9.5 tires on my stock rims, they they work and look awesome.
