Anything wider than 33x12.5

It's curious anyone have pictures of 33s wider than 12.5 inches and how does it effect driving, articulation, power, etc.

I would't run any wider than 12.5" unless you are into doing trails full of deep snow and/or deep mud where you have to stay on top of the mud or snow.

Anything wider just makes your Jeep far more prone to hydroplaning on wet roads and if you have to drive on snow-covered streets during the winter, you want narrow pizza-cutter tires to dig down through up to several inches of snow to the better pavement below.
