Anyone running stock rims with 12.5 wide tires?

Looking at getting these sick looking rims for my truck.. but problem is they are 4.5 backspacing with a 0 offset. so their gunna be shoved under the wheel wells again like the stock ones were. I plan on runnign these rims in a 16x8 with my 33x12.5 wide tires on them, just worried about rubbing issues on the swaybar, etc at full lock. anybody had any experience with this?

I have 15x7 wheels with 12.50 tires. The wear isn't the greatest I know that, there's a little rubbing at full lock but I don't even feel it I only know that because I can see the area where its touching the sway bar just a hair. Once these tires wear down to where I need new tires I'm going to 15x8s for sure.

you should be fine man just check everything out at full lock and stuff or you could just take the sway bar off. Many on here do even for DD including me.
