How tall and wide can I go without rubbing? 2012 2dr sport JK
 
I bought stock steel wheels on purpose because I plan on buying new rims and tires, I have heard if I lift it, that it will void my warrantee... I don't want this, therefore I would like to put 33" tires on. Will these fit? And I also would like information on spacers if I'll need them etc... Thanks everyone!!

You won't need spacers of you get a wheel with the correct backspace. Something in the 4.5" backspace or less. What size wheels are you planning on going with? That will allow us to recommend a tire size. With 33" tires and no lift, you would most likely experience some rubbing if you wheel and maybe some under normal driving. Many people run 33" tires with no lift.

Well I was planning on going with a aftermarket wheel like a 16" or 18" what is the difference in wheel size to total diameter?

With a 16" wheel, you limit yourself on how big of a tire you can run eventually, simply because the 16" wheels aren't very common. With the 18" wheel, you get into some crazy expensive tires. If you are wanting something larger than a 15", I would recommend going with a 17". Literally hundreds of tire choices in that rim diameter.

For the 17" rim, I would recommend something in the 285/70/17 range. Duratrac would be my choice in an AT tire (really more of a AT/MT hybrid). Of course, there are many other choices. Browse around the forum as there are several folks running that rim/tire size combo.

Here is a 2012 4dr with 17" Black Rock 997s and 285/70/17 Duratracs, and a 2010 Mountain Edition 2dr with 17" ProComps and the same 285/70/17 Duratracs. Neither of these are my Jeep, just posting for reference. Also, here is a thread over at JK-F devoted to 33s with no lift. I'm sure you can find plenty of options in there.

I like the idea of 17" and the wide range of tires that's exactly what I wanted to hear thanks you

I have a 2012 Sport, and opted to go with an 18" rim, and 275/65R-18 Kelly ATR's. Although tires in the 18" is slightly higher in price - this gave me a bit wider footprint without rubbing, and the option for a larger tire when I lift it after the warranty runs out.

I have a 2011 Jeep Unlimited as well. I just lifted it and put 33" tires on stick rims. 285/70R17 and have no rubbing.
