What's a tyre? All I can find is:

Tyre (t r) An ancient Phoenician city on the eastern Mediterranean Sea in present-day southern Lebanon.

Just yanking your chain. We all know that the UK knows grammar quite good. But when it comes to spelling and pronunciation the US is master of the English language.

You should be fine with 33s on a 1 1/2-2" lift.
It's better to regret something you did do, than to regret something you didn't do.

I'm kinda new to this thing as well, what model wrangler do you have ? The factory rubicons are LT255/75R17 (32's), not sure if the rubicons have a bit extra lift than the other models from factory or not.

How's the diesel in it ? What kind of mileage are you getting with it ?

rubicons do not have any additional lift over a sport or sahara all JK's can run a 33 inch tire without any modifications as long as they are under 11 inches wide. I ran a 35 with no mods other than ripping off my air dam but I wouldn't take it off road that way. there is a thread that will tell you what size will fit with what lift and so on.

First of all I'd like to welcome you to the forum!

Second, we have a great thread somewhat related to your question: Largest tire on stock JK? Here's your answer!. It's a lot of info. but basically it boils down to the fact that you can run up to a 33" tire without a lift as long as you don't do any heavy flexing while wheeling.

Lastly, with a 1-1/2" to 2" lift on your rig, 35" tires will fit nicely. Here's a pic of my rig and I'm running 315/75R-16 tires (roughly 34" dia.) and a 1.5" lift. This was when I had the stock fenders and I did get a little rubbing in high flex situations so I replaced them with flat fenders.
