Newbie Needs Help!

Hey guys, turned 18 a few months ago and bought my first Wrangler. Got an 04 TJ SE with 98k on it. So my first question would be how would running 33x12.5or13.5 on 15x10 rims with 2.5" BS look? I am going for a wide stance. And how much would that stick out from of a stock fender?

I'm runnin 33x12.50 on 16x9 wheels, stock fenders, 4in suspension lift and no back spacers. It looks pretty beefy. I'm gonna get wider fenders. Call's for 7" but i'm like u, i think that bulldog look is awesome!

I'm assuming 2.5 BS means body spacer?

yeah, my guess is he means backspace...

and if you're on a stock suspension, you wont be able to fit those 33's on there...you'll need to add a 2" budget boost (the cheaper/not ideal option) or a 3" suspension lift.
