I just got a 4" lift for my 99 TJ. Just wondering if I can get 33's for my stock rims? And if I do do that (lol dodo) would it look stupid, or should I just get new rims and tires? I found a set of 15x8. I thought that was to skinny though. What do u guys think?

Depends on tire with wither you can get away with stock rims. If you get a 33 9.50 then yes with alittle adjustment to your steering stops and your good. If your stock rims are less then 8in wide you will want a tires thats no wider then a 10.50. If you got wider then 9.50 you will need a 4in backspacing rim or wheel spacers. Also a 15x8 rim is good for up to a 12.50 wide tire. If you want to go 13.50 or wider you will need a 15x10 -15x15 rim. Hope this makes sense.
