HELP... Tire size question

I'm looking at getting new wheels and tires and I was wondering what's the maximum size I can get to go on a 2012 Wrangler Unlimited Sport size out a lift.

Also, I'm looking at getting General Grabber AT2 tires unless someone has any better suggestions for the price.

Duratracs are a huge favorite here! I think they are close in price. If not I really like my Yokohama geolandars AT-S and I know those are cheaper.

Your biggest size is 285/70/17 or 315/60(or 65 I forget)/17 both of those are 33" tall tires. The first one is 11" wide and you will need either wheel spacers or a washer or 2 on the steering stop. The second size is 12.5" wide and you ABSOLUTELY need spacers. If you don't want any spacers or washers you can get 265/70/17

If you sell your 17" wheels with tires tho and buy new wheels and tires in say a 15 or 16" size you will spend as much money as if you just bought the tires for your 17's

Well I actually already have 16" but I was wanting to go down to 15" because the tires are so much cheaper and I like the look better. Any suggestions on 15" wheels for $100 or less??

Thank you, I just found 33X12.50R15 General Grabbers AT2 for $163.01 so I might be able to make this work on my budget
