Military tires fitment

I am wanting some michelein xl 12.5 r 20 and need to know how wide of a wheel I need, I found a site that has the specs on the tire and it recomends 11" wide wheel, so should I buy a 20x12 wheel or can I even do this, I'm wanting to us aftermaket wheels like rockstars, rbp wheels

thanks,
Randy

yes you can mount them on 20x10,11,12,14.just be prepared they are heavy tires without the rims

you will want to atleast upgrade your brake pads,or you will be wearing out stock ones

depends on if you want the tire sticking out past the body,but most manufacturers like xd,american racing,rbp,eagle,etc are only gonna offer somewhere in the 4.5 or 5.5 in.4.5 will put the tires out past the body more.the wider and more offset the more chance to scrub fenders or bumper.too little offset tire rubs spring.

I'm wanting the least amount of tire sticking out without my tire hitting my spring ofcourse. So maybe in the middle somewhere around 2?

I just have 18's now, so I'm gonna have to buy some, I just order my tires earlier today. Was just wondering if anyone had already done this and what would work the best for both worlds

The ones in my sig are 18 moto metals with Terra grapplers, haven't took a new pic because it looks funny with a 10" with the same wheel/tire combo I had with the 6"
