For a 12.5 tire I would go 4" and you'll need wider flares regardless ...

My 10.5 tires sick out of my 4.25" wide sahara flares about 3/4" with a 3.65 backspacing wheel..

Im getting the bushwacker flat fenders, theyre like 2" wider then factory from what ive been told so as long as they only stick out a inch then I'll be fine

You should be fine with the flat flares

Go to aev's website and look at all their photos. Their wheels are 5.2" backspace and most of the tires you will see them with are 12.5" wide. That will show you how far the stick out with 5.2" compared to the 4 and 4.75" you are looking at. I would go with 4.75. They already stick out some with 5.2 and 4 would add 1.2" more on top of that.
