Tires are like shoes, some run larger than others so there is a small chance that they would rub at full steering wheel lock with a 285/70R17 on your stock wheels. (this goes for all 2007+ stock models but is less likely on the Sahara and Rubicon models)

Specs for what? What are you trying to do?

Congratulations on the Rubi! You can run a 33" tire on there but I wouldn't recommend running them on your stock wheels with spacers. Upgrade your wheels to something wider with the correct offset and you'll be much happier in the long run.

Running a 33x12.50R17 on your stock wheels will make your tire crown in the center and wear quicker. Lowering the pressure to compensate for the crown will only fix the appearance of the issue, not the issue itself. When pinched, the tire will hold more heat and the more heat within it, the faster it will wear and the higher the chance of tread separation.

If you want to keep your stock wheels I'd recommend the 285/70R17 size. If your Rubi has more than the standard 2011 Rubicon suspension you may be able to go with a slight taller tire but we'd need to know more about your suspension.

Tire size on stock lift

I have a stock 2007 Wrangler 4 dr with 255/70/17. Im not quite ready to lift yet but want to know what size tires I can put underneath without doing a susp or body lift without rubbing. Can I fit 285/75/17. Do they make such a tire?
