^^^ I agree. I am running 295/70/17's on factory 17's, which actually measure out to about 34x12. I have 4x4 with the factory off road pkg and 5100's at the highest setting to bring the front about 3" up from stock. I know I can get more tire on mine (wider & higher) but I don't think 12.5 wides would clear on a stock 2wd setup.
You will rub the front of the tire no matter what (using a 12.5) when going over a bump and without any type of lift will rub at full turn in a parking lot. You may not think about it.... but that extra half inch of a tire will probably cut at least a half a mpg in gas in your efficiency. If you go with the above set up or at least get a leveling kit.....you can throw the 12.5 on there. Dont worry about the stock rims....not an issue.... Good luck!
