My take. Also wanted 33" but did not want to lift the wrangler and here in Sweden it is against the law if the wheel go past the fenders and bushwackers are expensive.
I have a 2 door Sahara 2012 auto 3.21.
So I went with Cooper st maxx in size 265/70/17 and with Black Rock Rim with 4.5 in backspacing. These are about 31.8" high, actually little lower than my 18" stock wheels but my new combo looks better due to the more aggresive pattern and that the stand out more, very little past the fenders.
With this combo and 3.21 the wrangler is like a racing car
and no need for lift or new fenders.
And this copper tire are very heavy, probably close to some 33" in weight.
I need some clearance for the wheels because I heavy load it for camping trips.
Anyway some picture
