    I just bought some 15x8 type B wheels from Wheelers Off Road. I was going to put some 33x10.50s on them but would 12.50s be ok or would it kill the tread life due to uneven wear from being mounted to 8" wide wheels?

    I'm running a 12.5" wide tire on an 8.5" rim and it's been fine. I don't think you'll have any issues other than clearance/rubbing.

    Really doesn't matter, what matters is the BS on the wheels.
