Yes it will be fine, most guys here run 8" width with 12.5's they say the bead angle is better on an 8" rim also, that's what I hear /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

If you haven't purchased them yet, there are also 33x10.5R15 BFG's in AT and MT.

Not that you can't run a 12.5 on an 8" rim, just that there are options out there. Tires rubbing the fenders if not lifted is the only real concern.

I run a 35-12.5 on an 8". On the snow and sand I go as low as 7 psi. Never busted a bead[knock on wood]

It will fit perfect, and those BFG's you want have a bigger lip around tire so you can't easily smack the rim with a rock /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
