I have 225 50 Kimo's but no lowering, and they fit fine with lots of room, id assume even with the drop they would fit

I believe you can because the differences are 10mm in width and a slight decrease in sidewall height. You are going from a 118.25mm height to a 112.5mm height. If you are only dropped 1.25" how can your tires be tucked with stock sizes? I have a 1.75" drop and 17s and I've still got a gap.
