You can put 33s but the need to be narrow. Best bet is to just buy some new wheels w/ 4.5-4.75 back spacing. But its not always that easy. So with that said.. try tirerack.com and look at the tire specs for something around 33" maybe 275/70R17 ish.. -Matt

From what I've seen and read 285/75 or 255/80, the later being 33x10 tall and skinny and only available as a KM2 from BFG.

Do you already have new wheels? They dont look like oem wheels? If you do have custom wheels you can get any with you want.

Do they make the tires stick out any more than the stock ones? Look them up and find out what back spacing they have. You may be able to get any size 33s you want.

Chances are since you have aftermarket wheels you have backspacing that is going to be in your favor, therefore you can run just about any size tire you'd like. I've seen guys put 37's on stock JKs, I'm not saying I recommend this, I'm just saying I've seen it done.

Typically 33's/35's are the norm but it depends on what you plan on doing with your rig.

We want to know the back spacing. Size and width can also play a role. So you have a 17x? With a ?.?? BS? Then we can figure things out. or wheel brand and we can see if we can find out. Post a good pick of wheel and tell me who made it.

The fronts may rub if you go 12.5 wide. You really want about 4.5-4.75 range bs. But you should be cool with the 275s or 285s or in us size 10.5 or 11.5 wide

When they put them on just do a good parking lot test with full sharp turns.
