Stock wheels and 33's

Will I have any spacing issues if I put 33's on my stock wheels? I will be adding a 3 inch lift in addition to the 33's. My jeep is the white one and those are the wheels I plan to use.

yes you will rub you will need to add some (2 or 3 each side) washers to your steering stops to prevent the tires from contacting the lower control arms at full lock.

You'll also have to watch out for the rear wheels rubbing the upper spring perch. On my old TJ I had 31x10.50 and could barely fit a finger in between the tire and the spring perch, 33x12.50 would be even closer. You should look into aftermarket wheels with at least 4" backspace or wheel spacers.
