If you got the fabtech lift you will have to buy new wheels. If not then you can keep your current wheels but most people don't recommend running a 12.50 inch tire on a 7 inch wide wheel.

Yes, your factory wheel is a 15x7. Mounting a tire that wide on a 7 inch wheel isnt recommended. Although you CAN do it, most likely the middles of your tires will wear out much faster than they should.

all he's saying is that he got the 5" lift that uses spindles. 3" spindle and 2" coil and new upper arm.

By the way I'd shoot for the 15x10, but an 8 will work fine.
