What to do about tires?

So I have 33x13.50-15 tsl's on the ranger right now. Im going to need new tires sometime this summer. my problem is that i have a 15x12 rim. I'd like to go to a 35 because i have plans for the truck later this summer. Could i put a 12.50 wide tire on a 12" wide rim? Most sites suggest you run a 8-11" rim. Or if anyone is runing a 14.50 on there truck or have ran a 14.50 id like see some pics.

if it were me id sell the swampers on the wheels they are on, then buy new tires and wheels. im sure u could sell the swampers for easily enough to buy new wheels. every 16 year old with a jeep wants swampers to be cool. they are really easy to sell to the young and dumb, and someone with a trail rig might want them. i bet on the wheels they are on u could easily get 300-600 for them....
