Dumb question..

Will these wheels go fit these tires properly and fit on my 2013 jeep wrangler JK properly? I'm also ordering a 3.5" rough country suspension lift. I'm trying to keep from ordering and then having to send back. I'm new to this.

Difficult to make out the backspacing...looks like 3.5?? ... in which case it would work. You wouldn't even need the lift to fit 33" tires on those wheels.

Thank you. Backspacing is 3 5/8 inch. That'll work? Wouldn't it look better with a lift though?

3 5/8" is just over 3.5". Yes, that SHOULD work without caliper clearance issues (although, I'd double check and be certain before ordering).

As to your question about it looking better...well, that's up to you. After all, it's your Jeep. It's big-time overkill for 33" tires in terms of functionality. But, if that's the look you want, and it's within your budget and abilities, that's your call. And I wouldn't worry about what anyone else says.

Would I do that? No. But what I like and want doesn't matter on your Jeep.

Happy Hunting!

P.S.

Personally, strictly speaking of looks only, I think a 10" lift would look bad @ss.

Looks like the wheels you have shown above are 5x5.5 bolt pattern. These will not work, the JK is 5x5.

I would not do a 3.5 lift to run 33s. Not just because of appearance (if it is your Jeep and you like the big lift littler tire look-that's your right) but because once you get at the 3 inch lifts, you open up a whole host of other spendy issues because the geometry gets all out of whack. I would come down to a 2.5 lift. You technically can run 33s without a lift at all and maybe just trim the fenders but I would still do one (just because that's me). Or could just do a body boost instead of messing with coils if all you want to run are 33s.

And if you plan on any offroad, "pretty wheels" will not stay pretty. If just a DD, different scenario. So just keep that in mind.
