Lol. Probably won't find much. I run a 15x10 wheel on 33x12.5" tires.

Narrower wheels are used to help maintain the tire bead when airing down your tires. 8" wide rim is suitable for a 12.5" tire if you offroad.

I don't think you'll find many tires that wide on a jeep, they don't look proportional.

Even when the mfg specs 8.5 as the minimum? 33x12.5 R15 Duratrac for example.

Correct. Don't worry about manufacturer specs. 8" wide wheels are perfect for those tires
