    Did it for a year, no probs at all. Only reason I stopped is I wanted to change the backspacing. Might rub a bit if you aren't lifted enough, or you might need a TINY bit of trimming...:hack:

    I have a friend that runs that setup and he hates it. He claims that with the buldge of the tire, he gets body roll, especially when towing. Just a thought.

    Running a wide tire on a narrow wheel will technically work (it will hold air and roll) but it will wear out the center of the tread faster and possibly cause the aforementioned body roll because of the ballooning.

    7" wheel and 12.50 tire will be fine.

    I run a 16" wide tire on a 10" wheel.
