33x12.5 on 15x7 wheels???

what i want to do is get 12.5" wide tires AFTER i get a spindle lift.. so i'm not worried about fitting them under the wells but is 12.5" too wide for a 7" wheel?

i know the chart says i can do it but i wanted feedback specific to this question and, if possible, anyone that has done this.

thanks guys

I wouldn't go past an 11.5" wide tire on a 7" wide rim. I think the rule of thumb is not to go over a 12.5" wide tire on an 8" wide rim. Just subtract the inch.
