They will fit, but will be close. I wouldn't put a 12.5" wide tire on a stock wheel, the center will wear and it won't feel as stable as with the proper width rim.

Depends on what year your truck is. For '99-'04 you'll want roughly 0 to +10 offset, so for a 9" wide wheel you want 4.5-5" backspace and for a 10" wide wheel you want 5-5.5" backspace. I run 35x12.50x18 tires on my '03 with 10" wide wheels and 5" backspace (-12 offset) and the tread edge is about 1/4" outside the fenders and at full lock I clear the frame/springs by about 3/4". I would prefer 5.5" backspace to keep the truck sides a little cleaner.
