i'd go with a 1.25" spacer or something... so there's no chance of rubbing. i'm sure you've seen threads about not throwing the wheels to far out of the wheel well, with less backspacing...
with the larger tires, theres chances you're going to rub the wheel well or the brake line... i'm not one for taking that chance, so i'd do my best to be in that happy 4.5" to 5" of backspace. make sense?

|tabber02||you're running stock (rubicon) wheels correct?|

Even with the the leveling kit? If so how big a spacer? Thanks.

|Thorshammer7||Thanks for the quick responce. I'm in Florida so no snow or rocks just sand and mud. I think I'll go with the 285/70/17 as I'm sticking with the stock wheels. Thanks for the link.|

Are you planning on keeping your stock rims, or looking at aftermarket rims? Do you want bigger rims (17, 18, up) or smaller rims (16, 15)?
The TF leveling kit will keep 33's from rubbing the fenders, but there's still tire width to consider, which is where the rims and backspacing come into play.
Read this, it'll give you enough info for a starting point:

New owner/ tire question
Hey all, nice forum. I have 2009 JK 4dr. The tires are currently 255/75/17's. I'm installing theTeraflex leveling kit and spend 80% of the time on the street. I'm looking for a taller ,wider set of tires and am not sure which way to go. TIA, Mike.
