rd-wrangler what about mounting 33x12.50x15 tires on 15x8 rims? would it be better to mount them on 15x10s so more tire is in contact with the ground?

InfernoGirl Yes. That is a stock Rubicon size tire, it'll fit your stock wheels fine, and your stock Jeep...

02WranglerTJ Would 4.0 backspacing be enough for a 15x8 wheel, with 31x10x15 tire?

Keep in mind the backspace on the wheels you are using... And the lift will likely be less expensive than the tires.. Keep that in mind if you want to go bigger ultimately, a half worn set of tires sitting in the garage is a pretty expensive decoration....

Iron Man Just had 33x12.50 put on 15x8 2005 LJ Jeep yesterday and with a 1.5" body lift runs fine but will install 2" susp. lift later.

4Jeepn 15x8 or 8" wide rim is good upto 12.50" wide tire, wider than that and you want to starting thinking about a 10" rim.
