Pinch seam question

This may have been covered before but I haven't had much luck searching for info. At what tire diameter do you have to start worrying about rear tire to pinch seam clearance? I currently have a 2" sport lift and am looking at either a 33" or possibly a 34" diameter tire probably the new KO2's when they come out. That pinch seam just hangs out so damn far. Don't understand why Jeep did that. Thanks in advance for any info.

What year is your Jeep? I think starting in 2013 they came trimmed from the factory. I wouldnt think it would be an issue on 33s, but could be wrong.

Unless it's trimmed, you're good at 33 and below. Above 33 you should consider trimming it unless you have a 13.5 or newer.
