12 inch rim 12.5 tire

Well got my sisters boyfriends truck at the house waiting on wheels and tires want to run a 12 wide rim and he wants the bfg km2 which only comes in a 37x12.5x20 but if it steps up to a 38 it goes to a 14.5 wide. will that look ok with 12 inch rim n 12.5 tire. Truck is a 2003 with 6 inch super lift. Does any body have any pics and feel free to comment

IMO the 38ms would look better. But they're going to rub quite a bit. Especially the 14.5 wide. That is unless he trims his fenders and throws on the biggest set of buschwackers.

Re: 12 inch rim 12.5 tire

Right but I think we plan on running the Pocket style flares guess maybe he will have to step down to a 9 inch wide rim

I think the 12" wheel will still look good. It'll be a little streched.

Re: 12 inch rim 12.5 tire

imo 6" lift and under, i would go 37" more like 35"s tire or less. 8" + lift 38"+ tires and so on. i think a 6" with 35's look better. i had 35x14.50x15's on my 79 and it only had a 4" lift and it looked good. it sat just as tall as my buddy's z-71 with a 6" lift and 35's.

the km2 also have them in in 325/60R20 which will work with the 12" rims and are 35 1/2" tall tires.

Re: 12 inch rim 12.5 tire

i think it depends on the truck though too. i think 37" to me is the cut off on height to 6" lift. 38"+ needs 8"+ lift i think. has he thought about a different brand or style tire or possibly different rim to get the height and width you want

Re: 12 inch rim 12.5 tire

I'm runnin 20x12 rims with 35x12.50 hankook A/T's on a 6 inch fabtech lift. I couldn't be happier the fit is perfect! with 37's I rubbed pretty bad with the wide rim.
