Helpp anyone! 33s or 35s?

hello everyone! I need help deciding wether to get 33s or 35s. My 2012 jeep wrangler is complete stock! And I have crappy stock wheels! I've had my jeep for about 1 month now and haven't even gone off-roading yet. I know it's Sad I know I know! So I need help. I know 33s will fit and wnt need a lift. But 35s will need a lift? should I wait till I have enough cash to the lift kit? Because I have enough now for 33s. Please let me know

33s without lift with 4.5 back spacing looks great... nice thing about tires can always upgrade to bigger tires when funds allow for lift..

Wait until you have the cash if you want 35's.. Buying a cheap lift kit is a bad idea,

Yes, with some additional fender liner trimming and front lower bumper trimming.

BUT.... For the cost of 1.5" bolt on wheel spacers($100, per pair) you can buy (2) 15" wheels with proper backspacing. Also generally speaking tires for 15" wheels are cheaper than tires for 17" wheels so you should be able to get a 15" wheel and tire package for the same or only slightly more than the 17" set up you are considering.

Give us a call if we can help you crunch the numbers. 1.888.459.4080. Anyone here would be happy to help you but if you want to speak with a fellow Jeep owner call TC (ext 51826) or Anthony (ext 51815). Both of them own lifted Wranglers and know the fitments well.

Do 33's until you've built it up to properly run 35's. There are a lot of unforeseen costs if you want to do it right; lift, regear, wheels, beefier spare tire carrier all while trying to keep as much as possible under warranty if you have one. You can get away with a lot of these things and still run 33's until you're jeep is ready for 35's.
