There are a few differences.  First of all the 12 bolt wheels have 1/3 more bolts holding them together which in theory makes them stronger. 12 bolts are made of a little bit higher quality of steel. 12 bolt wheels have a hex shaped air valve that is held in by a nut on the back side of the wheel and require a small o-ring in the valve assembly. 

In short 99% of the time the anser is Yes.  The wheels are 9" Wide with a 7" Back space or (BS).  This means that your wheel will be tucked under your rig 7" of the 9" width.   Most can get away with this on the rear axle.  But on the front you will hit your tie rod.  There are ways to run the wheels in stock form.  Wheel spacers.  As spacer that bolts to your stock hubs, these spacers have a different set of lugs in the same 8x6.5 bolt pattern that are spaced out 2" further than your stock hub.  This allows you to run the stock wheel.  For the hardcore wheeler spacers are not the best choice, recentering the wheels would be a better route.  There are companies that make HighSteer arms that make it to where you run a shorter tie rod.  stock wheels can be run that way.  The last way is if you use Hubs off of a truck that had dual rear wheels.  Those hubs are wider and allow you to run stock wheels.  All in all most of the time you are better off going with a recentered wheels as the list of things above will prob. end up costing you the same if not more than just starting with a recentered wheel.

Yes.  Both wheels work the same with radials or bias ply tires.  I suggest PVC inserts for all wheel purchases.  They are what make the wheels double beadlocks when installed and they do not have a profile like "run flats" do.  They allow you to air all the way down to 0 Psi if you would like and not have any problems.

To cover my ass I have to tell everyone that anything I sell is for off road use only.  That being said.  The stock wheels are stamped DOT approved.  These are the wheels that all the humvees blaze down the road on every day.

Rock rings are there for a reason.  If you were to air down on a wheel that did not have a rock ring welded in there is a chance with low enough air pressure that you could bend the outer lip of the wheels.
