So if the wheel is to wide, does that mean the tire is to wide also?

The users manual says 7.00-15 tires, which is what is on these rims.

Going back to my original post, the tire is rubbing on the wheel well.

When the PO got new tires, where the rims replaced also for some reason?

Very possible the wheels were replaced, and if they have offset to the inside, that's most likely your problem. If the wheels are too wide, it might be part of the problem, and if they are too wide and offset to the inside, would make the problem worse.

You really need to inspect and properly measure those wheels, and the only way that I know of to be sure is to remove the tire from the wheel.

I agree with SteveH. To be sure everything is the way it is supposed to be. Take the tire off the wheel and make the measurements. I suspect it is a combination of the two. And no - the tire is 15 inch. It will expand to fit on the wider wheel as long as it is not too much wider.

Wheel size may be on the wheel and, yes the tire must be removed to find it. zz

tire shops have a giant caliper that they use to measure the wheel to determine proper spin balancing. no tire removal is required.
