will they fit? will they rub?

I have the new BirdDog 17x9 wheels. 4.5" back space. I just picked up the Goodyear Silent Armor LT285/70R17 tires (33"). I hope to pick up my new Sahara monday, and the dealer is supposed to mount the new wheels/tires. These things look huge. Will they fit or rub my non lifted 2014 2 door Sahara?

They should fit fine. A 4.5 bs is a -6 offset. I am running 18x9 -12 offset with 285/65/18 (33s) on my 2014 JKU SAHARA. So you should be good with 285/70-17.

I'm going to give the 33" tires a try without the leveling kit but i'm not sure if the automatic transmission will shift okay or whether or not the speedometer will be significantly off. dealer says it should not be a problem but i thought i read where they can compensate for these problems up to Jeeps largest stock tire which is a 32". Probably should get a Procal ordered.
