32x11.50 advice

Hello, all. I am new to this forum and wanted some advice. I have a 2003 Rubicon and I want to add a 2" suspension lift, probably Skyjacker, though I am still considering Old Man Emu.

My question is with that lift, can I put 32x11.5's on 16x10 wheels and likely not have a lot of rub. Or is that tire going to be two narrow for the 16x10. Also, am I going to need to add spacers if the new wheel has 4.5 BS as opposed to the stock 5.25 I have now on my Moab Wheels?

Thanks, any help is appreciated.

No spacer needed for 4.5" back space. I'd stay with an 8" wide wheel. Even if you go up to 33X12.50's, I'd run an 8" wheel.

I ran 32 11.5s on a 7 inch wide wheel with no issues. at 10 inch wide wheel is way too wide for a 11.5 tire

8" wheels are almost ideal...

Thanks. Looking at wheels there's very till options out there for the 10" wheel anyway so I'll stay with the 8". Appreciate the feedback, wheels aren't anything to go with the trial and error approach!!!
