33X12.5R15 tire on 10.50 15" rim = fit?

Hey everyone, I just picked up a 1998 Jeep wrangler and I am loving it.
I am new to posting on this forum but I've been lurking around for some time now, just gathering as much as info as I can. This is a great Jeep encyclopedia!

Looks like I came across a dilemma I can't solve through searching so I was hoping the more seasoned members would be able to help me.

I currently have a 15" 10.50 Cragar wheel with 31x10.50R15LT tires.
I am looking to upgrade to a 33X12.5R15 tire using the same wheel.

Will it fit or do I need new rims? If so, what size rim?

Thanks in advance guys.

Yes without a problem. People put those size tires on 15x8 rims.

They will fit without issue. Although they are a bit wide (the wheels) there's not a problem.

Yup. Sure will. My 35x12.50's are on a 15x10 and I mounted them no problem at all.
