Please clear this up..

I have a 2013 MOAB edition that came with 17 inch rubicon wheels and 265/70R17 Goodyear silent armor tires.. which are great, but obviously won't last forever. Is it possible for me to put a 15 inch wheel with 33x12.5 tires on this vehicle without making any modifications ? Currently the only thing i've done is put a rough country 2.5 inch spacer lift on it. I'm only asking this because someone told me that i couldn't put those wheels on this jeep, but i really wanted to double check with some true jeep enthusiasts. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

some 15" rims fit fine others dont have clearance for the brakes. Many people are running 15" rims tho and many fit.

X2. Figure out what wheels you like and call the supplier to see if they'll clear the brake calipers.
