If you use the stock wheels, you'll need spacers, but with an 8" rim with 3.75-4 inch backspacing, everything will be fine.

You can, but that doesn't mean you should. Just get some black steelies, check CL they sell wheels all the time that you could use.

I just regurgitated everything I've read in the past couple weeks from 1 asking the same question, and 2 seeing it asked about 4 times since then. I like the topic because I start searching for rims and tires every time it is brought up.

If you have 8" stock wheels, 33x12.5's will fit the wheel. However the combo won't fit the Jeep without wheel spacers. Assuming you have a TJ. The rears will rub the spring perches and get eaten up, the fronts will rub the control arms.
