will 33' tires fit, no lift

I'm a newbie to the jeep world, but not 4x4's. I have search for this answer, will 33x11x18 fit on my jeep (2013 Wrangler unlimited 4dr) with out a lift or leveling kit, by using either new rims or spacers.

I had 275/65/18 dura tracs before my lift and 35's and I only had minor rubbing issues. So it can be done but might run into more problems if you are doing a lot of off roading.

Short answer is yes, but that's strictly on road. Try reading some of this thread for answers - it's pretty good.

Largest tire on stock JK? Here's your answer!

There's no way to fit 33' tall on any Jeep. 33 feet is over 3 stories tall. There's no way you can have enough wheel base to run tires like that.

33" tires are just under three feet tall and can fit on a JK. But you may need to do some slight modifications.

My new 295/70R17 Toyo M/Ts are right at 33". They rub on the air dam in tight turns. I could trim it but I'm getting the lift done next week so I'm just careful for now. No idea what would rub off road/disconnected, I'm waiting for the lift before I leave the pavement again.

I like this answer, too.
