Stock wheel question

I did you the search field already but I wanted to know if any of you run stock wheels with you lift? and if so what size tires do you run? I am getting a 4" lift and was thinking of just keeping the stock wheels for now. Thanks for your help

I run a 37 12.5 on stock wheels but I also have the 1.5" spydertrax spacers. Unless you have the spacer or a wheel with 4.5" or numerically less back spacing, a 12.5" wide tire will not fit on the rear axle because it will rub the control arm. Semper Fi.

I have a jeep and it goes over shit.
