Exclamation New to Tires and Wheels

My ideal Wrangler JK is 2.5" Teraflex Lift Kit, 17" wheels with 33's. Here is my dilemma since I am new to the whole modification thing. I am looking at buying the Black Rock Yuma 908M which is a 17x8 wheel with 4.5" backspacing. I want to get 33's, but the width is scaring me. Can I put 11 or 11.50 wide tires on a wheel that is only an 8? Please help calm my fears or tell me I am screwed. Thanks!!

My wheels (MB TKO's) are 15x8, and my tires (GY Duratrack's) are 33x12.5x15. Everything fits perfectly.

If you have fitment questions I would recommend calling the vendor and speaking with a sales person. I called DTD with a few questions and they were very helpful.

You should have no problems at all with that setup, other then a lighter wallet due to the cost of 17" wheels and tires.
