You want a 33" and a wheel with a minimum of 4.5 BS.

Well "33" is the max height.

So if you want to do a 16" rim your looking at a 285x75x16 which is close to a 33"

Or a tire listed as 33x12.5x16

Probably a stupid question to you experts, but if a 33" is the maximum diameter you can put on, what is the diameter of the ones that come stock on the 2012 JKU sport. Thanks. With 33" diam, do most Jeeps still fit into a garage with a door that has approx. 7' tall opening?

32's are a stock size.

33's will only increase the ride height by 1/2"

No worries.
