Im sure itll fit, but you'll most likely still end up rubbing at full turn or if you flex at all. Im kinda curious, so if you have some time I can bolt up a 33/12.50/15 I have on a 15x8 black steelie with a 3.75 backspacing on my stock TJ and see if what issues there are tomorrow and post up.

never got around to it, and my 33 is more of a 32 since its pretty low on tread. Honestly I would do what CMA_Rider suggested and do at least 2in budget boost,

Since it is kind of on subject what is the biggest that can go on stock rims no mods? 15in rims no idea on backspacing or what my tires currently are, I can check later. I have been wondering about tires.

Looking at this as well.... Got a 2" BB on my 98 Wrangler Sahara..,. Looks like i could fit some 33x10.50x 15's, but thinking it will be too tight. Probably will get some 32x11.50x15's - Would like to see one with the 32's on it.

Add a 1.25bl and mml, then you can run 33s

You can run 33/10.50/15s on a 2in BB, you wouldnt be able to flex much, and if youre on factory, youll most likely rub unless you get spacers or a different rim with the right back spacing. Idealy with a 2in BB you will want to run 31 or 32s, with that you shouldnt have to worry about rubbing or anything. And should offroad pretty decently. I ran 31s on my facotry suspension for a long time, offroading and all, never had any issues.

The widest tire you can put on a factory rim depends on what rim you have. If you have a Canyon or Ravine that is a 15x8, you can run up to 12.50 wide tire, if you have a Ecco wheel or a steelie that is 15x7, you can run up to 11.50 wide tire, so 32/11.50/15. But depending on how big of a tire you run, you might have to end up getting spacers, for exampl if you have a 3in lift on 33/12.50/15 tires on 15x8 factory rims, then you'll need spacers, if you have a 31/10.50/15 tire on a 15x7 or 15x8 factory rim, you wont.

Yes, with a minimum of a 2" BB. Don't expect to do anything but driving on the road or very mild off road.
