I was gonna get the 275/70r18 but after looking around, would the 33/12.5r18 fit the stock 18 inch wheels on the Sahara?

the 33X12.5 is wider

The 275/70/18 is 33.16" tall and 10.83" wide

You can't get the 12.5" wide tire on stock wheels without wheel spacers. 275's will fit without. Once you go to 285's then they will start rubbing

315's are about the same as 12.5" tires
