Stock Wheels w/ bigger tires?

I have a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport. I don't know all the dimensions of the wheels and tires currently but can I keep the stock wheels and be able to put a bigger/wider tire on it for off roading or do I have to put a bigger wheel on too?

minor suspension lift and aftermarket wheels with enough back spacing are normally required to clear bigger tires.

I kept my stock 15" wheels and put 33 x 10.5 BFGs on them and they look & handle great with no sidewall bulge.
