4.5" is cutting it close for 12.5" wide tires...about the max. make sure the axles are centered or you might get issues. will likely need the steering stops adjusted.

It will also depend on your Jeep and the lift it has. As the Jeep is lifted the axle in the rear shifts to the passenger side and the front axle shifts toward the driver side.
