Would 15" tires fit my 2014 wrangler sport?

Will 33/12.5/15 tires fit my 2014 wrangler. I am trying to find a spare wheel and tire that doesn't cover my third brake light. BTW: I was able to run that same tire size on my '07 JK. Just curious if Jeep changed the brake size, etc. on the '14 model. Any info would be helpful.

I can't say 100% for sure, but I know they do fit the '13s without a problem. I would check the duratrac thread to see if anyone with a '14 has installed them yet. I'd say it's a safe bet that they'll fit without any issues.

I have 15
' wheels on my 2014 JKUR. My understanding is that steel wheels will hit the calipers,. I have Alloy's with 3.75 BS and have no issues.

Yes, they will fit.

33x12.5R15 with 3.75" backspacing and -19mm offset is what you want.

As others have said the issue is the 15" wheels rubbing on the calipers. 3.75" or less of backspacing should provide enough clearance. You may get some spatter on the doors and fenders from pushing the wheels out with low backspacing and 12.5" wide tires. The JK model year is not a factor.

It's the old some fit, some hit. PC 52s should fit fine as they fit previous models without an issue.
