You need a 8" wide wheel (or wider) for a 12.50 tire... here is a thread of mine but your fenders will be different with a ZR2.

ive seen people run a 12" wide tire a stock rims, but it is not reccomended also even if you do trim the fender flares and fender with a tire that wide youll still rub the sway bar.
