33x12.50R__ <--Fill in the blank.

I don't know what mt locks are so I will ignore. If you have OEM 17" wheels, you need a wheel spacer to throw a wider tire on. If you are ordering wheels, get the proper backspacing and you can definitely step down to a 15 or 16, only some 15's will work though. 33's will fit with no lift.

Largest tire on stock JK? Here's your answer!
i think this should get stickied in the JK section as well as the tire/wheel section.

oh, and dan is correct, 12.5 is the widest you can fit. depending on your wheel backspacing you may still need to run spacers though. my bs is 3.75" ZERO rubbing, no issues.

I am looking at those same wheels, however, 15x8 does not come with JK bolt pattern, so the only option is 17x9. I wonder what 17x9 wheel with a 33x12.5 would look like/act like aired down to 8 psi???
