Rims

I want to remove my factory 18" rims on 07' JK and replace them with 16" rims. Any idea what the max width of the rim can be? Also, need to know what the backspacing should be. I was thinking of 16"X10" but wasn't sure if they would rub. I plan to mount 33" tires on them. I ave a 2" BDS lift.

If you plan on running 33x12.5" tires, a 16x8 rim would be fine off road, but if it's on road only, 16x10 would be better. As far as backspacing goes, I'm not so sure with the JK's.
