32'' tire on 15x8 rim?

so im looking at getting new tires and rims. i read on another post that an 8 in wide tire will make a tire taller and give it more radius.. when a tire is measuerd at lets say 32'' on what rim is that based? if i got 32'' tires on a cragar soft 8 15x8 are they going to be 32''? what if on 15x10?

The size of the wheel needed is dependent on the treadwidth of the tire. A narrower rim will make a tire somewhat taller than on a wider one. However to narrow or to wide and you greatly increase the chances of blowing a bead when aired down at the trail or if you hit a pothole to hard at the mall.

Most 32's are between 9" and 10.5" wide, which most tire manufactures recommend to be mounted on a 7-8" wide rim. If you go to the tire manufacturers website they usually list the size wheel recommended under the specs page.
