Wheels/tires

Is it possible to put 33x12.50R17 on 17" x 9" 4.5" wheels/tires on a stock 2008 wrangler unlimited?

Sorry but if any of y'all have a link to a pretty basic "first lift" for my jeep (2008 wrangler unlimited) that would be awesome. I am 18 and just getting into jeeps and need all the help/advice as possible. Thanks a lot

yes you can, but with a 12.5...you'll rub your rear links and maybe rub in full turn up front. your gonna need some sort of lift to fix that.

you can also do the infamous 285/70/17 without a lift and you'll be ok. some are considered 32 or 33 depending on what kind of tire.

i myself am running 285/70/17 with no lift, no rub, and i'm able to keep my front airdam.
