Rawb77 Edit: May very well go with 285/70/17. From what I can see...they are basically the same size in diameter and circumference...but just not as wide.

If someone could still advise about the third tail light (if a mod is needed) and if i need a spacer thinger for the spare if it does indeed need the extra clearance.

Question about Tire size vs Rim Size

Hey guys, total noob when it comes to tire size things so bear with me...haha

I just bought a 09 JK. Came with the 17 inch rims.

After I burn through the stock tires on the Jeep, I want my next set of tires to be some Cooper Discoverer STT 33x12.50 17R

Question is...will those fit the stock rims? I know the 17R of course matches up...but I have no idea how width works with the stock rims.

Also...Question about the spare...will it fit on the back of the Jeep? Or will i need to purchase a spacer for it so it can hang? (Link what I need should I need it)

Lastly, Third brake light...will that be in the way for a 33" tire? (Link what I need to adjust the light should I need it)

Thanks for any/all help!
