Yeah 12" will clear 42.5's. In my opinion the super singles look better in the 13" version.

Not a problem bro. They will rub on the leaf springs when you turn full lock. Unless youre running some huge lugged off road tires it shouldnt really be a problem. You might wanna take some driveways while turning easy at first till you figure out what part is gonna hit if they hit.
