Icon4 Need Help Asap!

I just bought a set of 4 Super Swamper 33x12.5-15 tires. I just need to know as soon as possible if they would fit on 7 inch wide rims. I found a set of American Racing rim in the want ad and the guy selling the rims is not sure whether they are 7 or 8 inches wide. i know that i can put them on 8 inch wide but not too sure what would happen with 7s.

Yes. You can fit 12.5" tires on a 7" wheel. I believe the stock Ranger wheels are 7" and I know that has been done before.

I would think it would be a tight squeeze being i have 10.5 on mine and i could see another 2 inches cause some bulge..
