Rubi Tire question

I am looking to put some new wheels & tires I want to know if I can get some 32's with a 15 inch rim... Does the rubi have a little more lift than a sport? Can I get 32's to fit with a better wheel spacing... and what size or measurements on the rim should I get?

^^^ This. Same height suspensions... You can stuff 32's on any TJ with proper wheels, but flexing will create potential for rubbing. A 2" bb will clear your 32's nicely. Assuming you are getting 32x11.5's you need about 4.5" max bs on the wheels.
