NEW JK owner TIRE question

2012 jk owner here, just got the 4 door sport completely stock. recently just purchased some nice barely used 33 10.5 bfgoodrich m/t on 15 5x4.5 rims.. yes i know i need an adaptor to the 5.5 but is there a certain size i should get for back spacing and such just to make sure i have enough clearance, i know that 33s will fit with out a lift. so i just need to know this before i buy the adaptors, any specific brand i should get as well?

If the rims have 4.5 inches of back spacing you should be fine

Did I read that some 15" wheels have clearance issues with calipers and tie rods? I'll leave this to the experts. So be careful. Some reading for you:
