Depends on the offset/BS of the rims

Thats a bit too much BS for even a 12.50 wide tire.... 3.75 is the common BS for a 12.50 wide wide and you are trying for a 13.50 which will bulge about .5" more on each side.

They may fit, but rub... you may need wheel spacers to get it not to rub.... Not sure if they make a 1.25" spacer.... I think the standard is 1.5", but that would work.

Is the purpose of the extra-wide (13.5") tire for deep mud, snow, or sand?

Be wary, tires that are that wide love to hydroplane on wet roads and they are horrible/scary on snow-covered roads.

I mean I'm still on time to tell them I want to go 33x12.50x18. I really didn't think that going 13.50 would make a difference but you guys stated I'll rub meaning when I do a full turn....? I was currently running 15x10 with 33x12.50 I just wanted to go with a bigger rim and have the tire stick out more just abit
