They are 33x12.50x15 tires on 15x8 rims. They were only on for 900 miles. It has 315/75R16 on 16x8.5 rims now.

You should be fine. If you plan to off-road I'd go with 4.10s or 4.56

33s only have an inch more fender clearance, the other inch is on the ground.....

I probably will put 35s on my jeep when these wear down, honestly. I put 33s on because i didn't want to re-gear. Well, i'm still going to re-gear, so...going to gear it for 35s.

Much more! I can pretty much guarantee you will rub at any serious articulation. If you aren't going to wheel it then it doesn't matter.

sebbekk The JK Rubicon should have come from the factory as a 2DR with 33" tires and a 2.5" lift and as a 4DR with 35" tires and a 3.5" lift.

SloanG 35s with 2in lift. Doesn't look stuffed to me!

cheap4tw I am going with the Rock Krawler 2.5" x-factor kit, 16" cragar soft 8's or blackrock wheels, and 35" goodyear duratracs (which run small).

I also have ACE flat fenders right now and I think this will look awesome and function well on my JKU.

Just waiting for the government to send me my backpay!

Agree 100%!

I have 33s and an AEV 2.5" lift. To me it looks great like this. I want flat fenders, but then the tires *will* look too small and roller-skate-like. I will get flatties after I get 35s in a few years. No hurry. My JK makes me quite happy as it is right now...

This looks silly to me. No way can this jeep flex out fully and not rub. And the look alone is just a bit off.. To much tire. Just my opinion

roxbury29 2" Lift and 33's ( from stock I netted about 3" all the way around )

Likely going with 35's when these wear out and possibly Flat Flares !

BigManAndy 33's no lift:


33's TF 2.5":


I enjoy the lift and like the look, but it made my 33's look super tiny. Will probably go to 35's when I wear our the Duratracs. If I rub then, I have no problem cutting the flares or putting on flats.

Me too. I bought my jeep with a 2.5 inch lift and stock size tires (Someone pulled their mods before selling it, basically). Put 33s on it. Now it needs a regear, and the whole reason i put 33s on was because i thought it wouldn't need any mods besides wheels. Now i have to regear, and if i regear i might as well have 35s.

I'm thinking about puting 4.88s on so i can put 35s on later and still have enough gear. I'm not totally decided on that yet though.

And then i'd probably get another couple inches of lift.

Theres a few guys around here with 33s on TJs with no lift...or it doesnt look like theres a lift with the way it fills the wheel wells, anyway..dont know much about TJs. But i think it looks bad ass. And the only wheeling anyone does around here is tearing up other peoples lawns and making a bad name for everyone with a 4x4 anyway.....

most of the JKs around here are stock though...

heres mine..

07-07-2013 10:13 PM
Gkarshens I have the Rancho 2" lift and I just got 33s on 16s put on. I had planned to go with 35s, but I am glad I didn't. I think the size fits perfectly!
