Question about rims

I have searched everywhere all night trying to find the answer but I finally got tired and figured I would just ask.

My dana 60 is going in in the next couple weeks so I am looking for new tires and rims now. (my tires now are shot but i refused to spend the money until the dana 60 was in)

I have a 4 inch lift and I just want to make sure 18X12's are going to fit I don't really know what tires I am going with I have 35s right now but I think I am going down to 33s. Any idea's on what size tires I should go with? I already rub a little with 35s and I don't really want to deal with it again I just want 12 wides.

If you rub on one side only you need a adj track bar...12" wide IMO way to wide for a 12.5" tire...but your truck.

12" wide wheels??? What tire is 33" high and needs a 12" wheel? Are there 395/25-18 tires available? Look into the ratflex tires and wheels. They are not 12" wide, but offset 12" meaning they stick out 12" out the sides, then to get 26" height, run a 255/15-18. 255/15 tire may not be great on a 12" wide wheel. Hopefully the 395/25 is a common size.

1997 F350CC, 4x4, PSD Tipper pro kleenex open filter. Roggen 6" lift kit with 26" ratflex 12" offset tires. Downpipe cut and welded to adapt 3" into a 12" outlet. 12" muffler cut and adapted to 2", then a special turbo manifold from a volkswagon modified to flank out to 3" to the tail pipe. Interior from a Corvair modified by cutting 6" off the padding. Snize and snide 32gallon aux tank mounted in rear seat, rear seat relocated to bed. Bed shortened to 4ft.

I could have not understand your size. Maybe you are using 18" wide 12" wheels? In this case get the popular 405/55-12 size. Tirerack.com has tons of tires in this size, but for a 18" wide wheel you would really want around a 625 tire, but doubt that size is easy to find.
