37.12.5 or 37x13.5

Well its that time i need new tires. I have 37x13.5 now but you cant get to many tires in that size and if i go down to a 12.5 i can get a nitto trail grappler. Should i stick with a 13.5 or goto the 12.5?

edit: If i go with the 13.5 I will get the Kumho Road Venture MT KL71 for 421.00 a tire with free shipping from Discount Tire or the 12.5 in the NItto for 393.00 a tire.

What do u guys think....

I would go with the 13.50. I have the Nitto 325/65/18 which is a 35x13.50. If anything I would like to go wider. lol I would like to sell my tires and wheels and start over with something new.

Cant go wrong with either tire. I just put the trail grappler on mine (smaller of course) and very happy with them.

My 03 has 13.50 on them and they rub the spring pack at full lock steering. Do yours do this? Maybee I need a different rim. I have some sweet moto mellishas and dont want to ditch them so I am going to a 12.50 tire.
