Tire size help on my stock Rubicon wheels!?

Hi guys I just have a quick question. I have a 2003 rubicon. I have a 2.5" spacer lift and a 1.25 body lift for a total of 3.5" lift. I have the stock rubicon wheels. Can I run a 285/75/16 tire on this setup with the stock rubi wheels? I was looking at the Dick Cepek mud country MT to be more specific. I was told by a few guys that they run this setup and have no issues.

I just want to know if this size tire will fit alright, without any issues? I would like to stay away from spacers. I was going to order these tonight, so any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I'm going to say yes you can do it. The 285-75 is like a 32, 11.50 and it should fit fine.
Just getting to work is an adventure.

Yep, just under a 33. You may get a little rubbing at full flex, but shouldn't be too bad.

Yea you'll be fine... it equivalent to a 33x11.50, you might rub at full flex, but you'll be fine
