33" Wild Country Tires on 2001 TJ

Hello all. I have a 2001 Jeep Wrangler TJ automatic. It's ready for tires and shocks. I've read a lot of posts here and on other jeep forums but I need a definite answer before I spend a lot of $$$$. Here's my question.....

If I install a 2" BDS Suspension lift, can I run 33 X 12.50 X 15's with no other modifications? Will they rub? What offset should the rims be? Also, are the Wild Country Tires any good?

Keep in mind that I don't do any offroading with this jeep. It's basically street and highway driven. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks, Mike

You need 3" suspension lift and 1 inch body lift minimum for 33x12.5. You could add 1inch body lift but why not go 2.5 or 3 on the suspension and keep the option open for a body lift and better clearance. Many other threads today with similar info to think on.

2" BB is fine for that size tire, they will clear fine. You should make sure you are running 3.5 to 4" back spacing on the rims, otherwise you will probably get some rub on full turn attempts.

If you plan on offroading, you will want to go with a better (read bigger) lift and or body lift/MML kit.

I am running a 2" OME lift with 33-12.50-15 Duratrac tires and I have had no problems at all but I dont do any hardcore wheeling with mine. John
