275/65/18 on Aftermarket wheels?

Hey everyone, I recently posted about questions for a wheel and tire package setup on my 13' JKU Sahara, but have recently decided to purchase 18" wheels as they are not much more (including tires) than the 17" wheels. I was going to run a 285/70/17 or 275/70/17 on the 17x9 wheels but want a 18x9 wheel now. I have settled on the wheel I want which is a XD Addict that comes in 2 backspace 4.53 and 5.7. I was thinking of running a 275/65/18 (Toyo Open Country or Nitto Terra) tire which breaks down to just about stock size of 32.1x10.8. I do not want to stick out on the fenders and am trying to avoid rubbing, my question is would this size tire work, and which backspace will work with that setup? Can I go wider without rubbing? I know some people ran this size tire with spacers and they had mixed reviews. Thanks again!

Why not go with 33" tires on those 18s? That's what I plan to do. My wheels (Moto Metal) have 5.5" backspacing and I'm told I can run a 275/70r18 without spacers or lift and no rubbing. I will likely do Goodyear Duratracs which are supposedly 33.4", perform well on the street, snow and OffRoad and are lightweight.

My stock tires on the aftermarket rims right now are even with the outside of my fenders and my wheels are 18x9. Even though its not required, I will probably do a budget leveling kit to get one inch in the back and two in the front since my rake is lower than normal due to a steel bumper and winch.

I've thought about doing a 33" tire... I guess I was just being conservative, just trying to avoid a lift..
