12" wide tire on stock 16x7

Hey guys, I just bought my 255 85 BFGoodrich KM2's but with my body lift coming, and probably ordering a 6" Skyjacker lift here pretty soon and have been thinking alot about changing my gearing and throwing some bigger tires on. I've been looking at the Buckshot 305 85 16's, They're a 36x12. I'd like to run a 1.25" spacer and keep them on my stock wheels, I like the stockers because they're significantly lighter than any other rim I've previously run on the truck.

I know the fullsize chevy guys stuff 315s on 16x7's and I think even 16x6's fairly often, Im noticing quite a few guys on here with 285's on they're stock wheels as well so I dont really see it being too much of an issue, just wondering what you guys thought about it. Does anyone have a similar setup?

No abnormal wear. I run them around 30lbs and they wear perfect so far.
