Don't know if they'll fit. But Ground Hawgs are AWESOME tires . I had a set in 42" on a Ford gasser (i didn't know any better at the time)about 8 years ago. I loved the tires, though I'd never go so big again. Great off road, good on road and they wore pretty good for what they were (as you said).

With the correct backspacing you can run them with minor trimming. I stuffed 39.5 swampers under my truck with a 3.5" lift and only rubbed at full lock(turning left) and my drivers side at full stuff in the mud hole. the wheels only had 3.25" BS but you could maybe get by with a 4" BS. the 14" width is where you will have trouble, not the height

I run 37" Toyo MT's combo works great for me! It takes a bit of work on the rim offsets, and I cant recall what mine are now... The thing thats going to kill you is the width of those tires... Toyos are only 13.5" wide, your looking at a 14"... Mine rub on the springs at full lock, yours will RUB HARD at full lock...

Width... MAN its the Width that will kill you, the wider they are the bigger ark they have when you turn, so they hit the bumper and rear of the front fender. The BFG's are only a 12.5 wide tire, and they really only mesure about 12...
