Nothing wrong with a 12.5 on a 10 inch wide rim. Many people would prefer to put a 12.5 wide tire on an 8-9 inch rim because it helps keep the bead seated when aired down to have the tire squeezing out, but that's less of an issue with beadlocks. If you wanted to, you could certainly run a 13.5-14.5 tire on that rim.

12.5 wide tire on a 10" wide beadlock works great.

Why are you concerned?

You could run anywhere from a 10" wide up to a 16" wide tire on those wheels.

That concern was addressed with beadlocks.

You can go down to 1-2 PSI if you want.

Definitely go lower than 10.

This. Once you go below 5psi you'll understand what real traction is.
