Tires and wheels Q?

I am looking at 33x12.50x15 tires and wheels. How WIDE can I go on the wheels and still fit my 92 YJ? I want WIDE out of fender look. I am looking at the american racing baha wheels. Any body got any better ideas for wheels? Or anyone got a nice set of used ones up for sale?.......Oh Yeah....I will have 4" lift. Thx for any and all replies.

Thx alot......I have a nice set of wheels on a dodge truck now....It is a 86 ram 4 wheel drive. I believe they are 5 on 5.5. Is it a good idea to buy spacers that go from 5 on 4.5 to 5 on 5.5? What do ya'll think about that?
I saw a set of spacers on ebay.....was thinking about going that route. Any suggestions?

Just info you, the 33x12.50x15 Duratracs actually measure 32x11.50x15, I just got a set in Sept of 2011, I mounted mine on 15x8" wheels. I hope they do ok on 10" wheels.

Do you suggest me make a change in my tire size.....Do they make a 13.50? I dunno... I will research.....This place makes it too easy sometimes. I have ordered the 12.50 and I like the 10" wheel... If I can't get a 13.50. I will just hope all is well with what i got coming...thx for your Info. Will post pics in a couple weeks when I get it all together.

Do you plan on offroading your Jeep?

And yes there are a few 13.5 inch wide tires out there that I can think of but I think they only start at 35's all though im not 110% sure on that

an 11.50" wide tire on a 10" wide wheel should be fine, as long as you don't plan on airing down your tires for off-roading. there are some tires in 32" and 33" tires in 13.50" widths but they're usually off brand mudder tires that aren't great for on road driving.

I would not go wider than 12.5. Also spacers put stress on components that arent built for it.
