Will this size tire fit?

I am hoping to buy either 17" Ballistic Jester wheels or the Tuff T01 Red and Black wheels in 17". The next big part is what tires? I am thinking possibly 285/70/17 or 295/70/17 as I am looking for something around 33". My Jeep is completely stock (for now) so I want to make sure the tires will fit, I am unsure of the backspacing/offset of the wheels. Sorry I am a total newb! Thanks in advance!

Read the stickies and run a search on big tires and you will see 33" diameter tires fit. If they are too wide you just need to add spacers. All the specs for backspacing are there. Many rims offer several backspacing options.

I have a completely stock 2013 Sahara Unlimited. I put on 285/75R16 - about 33"
I mounted them on 16" X 8" rims with 4" backspacing. (The lower the backspacing number, the more the wheels stick out) Stock backspacing is about 6.25"

Here is what it looks like

I have a 2015 JKU Sahara that I just bought 35" 12.50r15 for. I am looking at Dx4 7S rims in 15x8 with 5x5 bolt pattern and -19 offset. Will they fit?

Would depend on the backspacing of the new rims but I have the 285/70/17 with spacers, no lift and Rubicon rims with no rubbing
