32" tires on a JK with no lift?

Interested in putting 32's on my 2007 JK with custom wheels, but don't really need or want a lift due to no real offroading. Will these work or should I hold off?? I can get a pretty good deal on the tires and the wheels, so I definitely need some help!

Yes. 32's come stock on Rubicons and Saharas, iirc. They'll fit fine.

I don't know what you're looking at specifically, but lots of JKs come standard with 32s. Every Rubicon and Sahara for example. You should be good.

Have you not seen the ones that come stock with 16" wheels? They don't put 32's on those bad boys.....

If i decided to go offroading, which would be minimal and light anyway, much rubbing or what do you guys think?? I'm mostly a street jeeper, but occasionally like to explore the mountains.

Zero rubbing. 32's are a factory option for the X and as previously stated, standard on the Sahara and Rubicon. Your best bet would be to check CL and the for sale sections of the various Jeep forums to find someone selling their Rubicon tires and wheels.

i'm looking at the 255 75 17 Silent Armor Goodyears and 17" rock crawler series 98 with 4.25" backspacing and 0 offset, which I would have thought would help if any rubbing had occured.
