They offer them in a 15x8" as well from what I just searched. I would go for the 8" wide rim and appropriate tires from there. A 12" wide tire will be a bit much and can add a lot of unsprung weight and resistance to the steering system. Although that set up would look killer it may be a bit of overkill. As far as running street tires only. With a good alignment it should ride pretty good. As good as the shocks will allow.
Also it may take a little playing to find the optimum tire pressure to run. A good way to find best contact is to find an area with somewhat packed dirt to drive over then look at the contact patch. I would think with the tires you described a good starting pressure would be 22-24 psi.

Thank you, we've been on vacation so haven't been working on the tire and rim situation. The offset is something I know nothing about. From what I can determine, the factory wheel is a 40 offset? We just want a nice riding street tire. The Reeper came with Evans adjustable shocks (bought it used) I don't want to stress any suspention parts. The idea of 12" all around is as you indicated to much. Maybe 10" on the back and 8" on the front?
