Can I fit a set of wheels/tires in back?

I don't have Wrangler yet but trying to figure out if I can fit a full set in the back of JKU when I get it?

yep leave the seat at home assuming you mean stock tires and wheels....and if going somewhere to get larger tires and wheels put the stockers back there and ride on the new ones.

Back? cargo? Up to a 35 will fit flat in the cargo area with no modifications. You will lose nearly all the space though. Gonna have to install a rack above it to put stuff on.

I got 5 in my (TJ tires and wheels).and not to be a Smart Ass but there was a thread a while back it can be done, it is just not real easy with a JK, a JKU should be easier.

Like was stated above, I fit (5) 35" tires in the back of my JKU by folding down the seats.

5 35's not on rims will fit in the back with seat folded down. Aired up on rims I doubt.

This^^! Mine were OEM Sahara wheels/tires and all fit in my JKU. As was mentioned, there was a thread about this and someone included a diagram of how it's done.
