Tire size and width

Okay, I got a 2002 wrangler with 4 inch lift, currently has 33x.12.50 15R BFG Mud T/A's on MT classic locks 15x10, i was wondering how bad new tires would rub if i bought 33x13.50 15R on my same rims
Any input would be great
Also hi to everyone since this is my first post

it all depends on the back spacing of the wheels

Turn your steering wheel all the way in one direction, then look at your tires and see how far away from the control arm it is, if it is less than 1/2 inch, then I would say you would need more backspacing.

Either new wheels or spacers..but spacers cost just as much as new wheels...lol.
