currently i am using a 12" ord steel rim, and using a 5-12 tire. can the 12" steel rim accommodate road log tires a.k.a. "kargador"?

if you opt for low profile 13" tires, you don't need a "lift" but if you decide to use the 13" "kargador" tires, you need some amount of lift. If you saw the pic of my ride in the garage, you'll notice i'm using the kargador tires. I have around 2" of lift up front and maybe 3" in the rear...for the offraod look. But these tires are no good for on-road use since they're very noisy and has too much rolling resistance. That's speaking from experience because I have replaced my front tires with Kenda 165/80R13 tires. Just waiting for my rear tires to wear out, then replace them likewise.

Btw, I would suggest a 185/70R13 tire size since it's a little wider than the 165/80R13 but almost the same tire height.

can i see the pic of your ride? ic, so ur saying that kargador is not really that advisable...main advantage is only having good looks ;-)

if i opt for 13" mags. does it look bad if i put a little lift? approx. how much is the price of 13" rim?

for the pic, just check my garage. yup, they're just for looks and maybe would help if you plan on fording creeks since they are tall tires(24"+). If you travel mostly on roads better settle for some smooth running commercial tires.

I did not remove the lifting flanges eventhough i replaced the front tires and it doesn't look as if it is using stilts.

Sorry i don't have any idea on the prices of 13" rims. I bought my truck with them already installed.
