wheel and tire combo

I have a question about a specific wheel and tire combo that I'd like to install on my '09 Sahara. The wheel is a Dick Cepek Torque wheel with 5 on 5 bolt pattern in 17x8.5 size and 5" backspacing. The tire is also Dick Cepek, the Crusher Radials 33x11.50R16 (LT285/75R16)

I also plan on installing a 2.5" lift as well. My question I guess is whether or not this wheel and tire combo will fit together and install on my jeep without any difficulties? I hope to post pics as soon as I can.

Wait, are you saying you want to put a 16" tire (33x11.50R16) on a 17" (17x8.5) wheel?

It should fit fine, as long as you get the right size tire for your wheels.....
