I wouldn't no if 12" would be to wide, not many people run them that wide anywyas, i wouldnt see why not as the tire are still going to be wider!!
With those tires though you could easily get away with a 10" wide wheel with no problem, and i think it would look a little better too

You SHOULD be ok. I am lifted 6" and on 13.5 wide...rubbed a smidge at first, but with some adjustments, no more problems. But I am also on 17's.

You might have to change the wheel offset to clear the inside of the wheel well. It will result in more tire/wheel sticking out of the wheel well opening but that's what flares are for.

Just my taste but I think the tires would look better on a 10" wheel anyways. I think big tires should have that bulging look and a 10" wheel will give you that. Regardless though, post pics once you get it done!!

Put some 40s on that bad boy.

A 6" lift! Dude how do you get into that thing!

Those wheels are going to look sick if you go with a 12.5 wheel.

With a 6" lift you could easily go 37's by 13.5 on 20's and i think that would look the best if you want the big tire look. I think 35's by 12.5 would almost be too small. my friend has a 4" lift with 35's and 20's and i think it looks excellant, cant get a much better look than that. and even if 13.5 looked too wide you could easily get snap on fender flares that would make it look great!!
