Widest tire on stock rims?

I read on a jeep forum that you can fit 10.50 tire on a 7 inch rim is this possible?

I know that a lot of guys on here are running a 12.5 wide tire on the factory 8" rims so I would say you would be safe with a 10.5" wide tire on a 7" rim.

I just realized I was looking at the wrong description they are 11.5 but if they ha 12.5 on 8" rim I think I'll be ok. I am looking at buying the Mickey Thompson baja claw.. Any info on those?

Had a friend that ran Baja Claws on his 97 F350 CC and they only lasted about 15k miles...

Mine is an 06, but I run 295/70/17 on mine. I would recomend the Nitto Terra Grappler's or Falkin Rocky Mountain's.I had the Nitto's first and loved them. I am running the Falkin's now and love them too.

I currently have 285 75 16 but i want a bit wider and Mud tread these trucks are so heavy I can't even drive in a wet yard or field without tearing it up or using 4x4 I have Firestone destination A/T they work great for hauling and on the road but that's about it!
