You should be able to run 11.5's without a problem. People will "reccomend" not running 12.5's but it has been done.

Yep, 11.5s are pusing it but will work. Negative on 12.5s

12.5 will fit, hell a 13.5 would

but it would be a PITA for the person mounting it, and it wouldn't have the greatest wear pattern.

i would say 11.5 max..

10.5s will give you the best wear, etc but 11.5s will look better and they will still work fine (i'd go with 11.5s)

I had 12.5 on mine and i had almost full contact..I'd say about 1/4" wasn't touching. Properly inflated as well.
