New Jeep ower in Northwest Indiana

Hello everyone!

Last year I purchase an '08 Rubicon Unlimited and added an cold intake(K&N 57 Series FIPK ) and chipped-it(Superchips Flashpaq). I figure one upgrade a year.

So, this year wheels and rims. What I'm looking to purchase is- Wheels(interco birddogs-17"x 9" with 3.5" backspacing) and for tires-( interco M/T Trxus 33" x 12.5" x 17") for now till I save up enough for a lift kit next year! The kit I'm interested it is the (JK DUALSPORT SC SUSPENSION 3.5"/4.5" from AEV).

I'm open to all opinions!

But if someone could tell me if I would be able to run this Wheel and rim package without lifting it, it would be most appreciated!?

Thanks,
Joe
