You might have some rubbing with those 12.5"...I've seen other JKs running 10.5" with no issues...You probably have to run some wheel spacers to fit those 12.5...Best of luck...

Spidertraxx or TeraFlex are some good quality brands..

If you have added a lift they will not work with the factory rims. I just put super swampers 34-10.50 on mine they hit could not bolt on. I have a lift and the front will hit the swap bar if you try to turn sharp, the rear will not bolt up they hit the rear sway bar. I am putting some soft eight's on to day. The off set is 0" so I should have room.
