33's (285/70R17) fit on my '12 with no lift, but not on stock rims. I used a rim with 4.5 inch back space.

With the stock wheels, you won't be able to go much wider than the current 10" wide wheels on your Jeep w/out spacers. Otherwise, you run the risk of rubbing your sway bar links, air dam, etc.

On second thought...just bypass the 33s all together and stick some flatties on that 3" with the 32s. That'll look swell!






can hardly breath in here with all this sarcasm..

Depends on their width. Pizza cutters are skinny tires. Anything 10" or under would pretty much be a "hold the anchovies" situation...

Stock tires are 10". And of course, it gets worse if the Jeep has a 4" lift w/flatties.

I don't personally. I run 285s myself. I consider pizza cutters something like the 255/80; tall and skinny. Not a huge fan of that look personally, but a lot of people love them! Here is a Rubi with stock wheels and 255/80s.


OOPS!!! My bad. Here's a better pic.

Assuming you have stock 17s? If so, with wheel spacers (which will 'make' backspacing 4.75"), you would be able to run 285s no problem and many people run 315s (35s).

Nothing wrong with 11's. You'll pretty much know pizza cutters when you see em. A lot of it has to do with how the tires fit with the rest of the Jeep's mods, too.

Cool. I wanted to tried to keep it close to the stock size as much as I can, but hated how I had a 2.5" lift and 32 stock tires. Was kinda of embarassed driving it around like that haha. I figured getting 275/70r18 would be the best size cause I didn't want to lose too much power(even though it is only 2 mph diff) and it made the Jeep looked "balanced" Jeep/Tire-wise. Anyways thanks guys, I feel better now.
