Question Question about tire size with stock rim?

I have the 2013 2 door wrangler sport, and the tires are really small on it. I mean for a few months I'm going to drive on them but in the spring and summer after I've earned some money. I would like some black rims but I'll save some money for now and use the stock rim, there isn't anything wrong with it. So if I kept the current wheel (16-Inch Styled Steel Wheels) what is the biggest tire I could put on it without any rubbing? I was thinking of 33" tires but not sure what kind and if I'd need any wheel spacing etc.
I've been looking at this link, about half way down the page, a silver 2 door has the stock rims with 33's...not a whole lot of info..but I think it looks great.
Any suggestions on a good cheap black wheel I can use as well if I decided to go that route?
Thanks a lot, appreciate any help.

A 33" tire will fit with no lift with proper back spacing on the wheels. You will need something like a 33x12.50 tire an 4.5" back spacing or less on the wheels

what is the largest size of wheel and tires that can be mounted on a 2013 4 door wrangler without needing a lift?
