What rubs when using 33" tires on a JK?
After reading many posts, it seems that 33" tires will rub on a stock JK with no lift. My question is what rubs? The wheel openings look to big for the stock 32" tires already. Is it because it is only a problem when off road? Looking at the Jeep the only thing that looks close is the width. If this is a width problem, how does lifting it 2" allow 33" tires to clear? It seems like a
33" tire would still rub on the rear bars with the stock wheels because the tires are wider. Would a 33" tire that was the stock width(255) clear, or would would the additional height still hit something off road? Or do you need wheels with a different offset anytime you go to a taller tire even when using a 2" lift? Any help would be appreciated. The vehicle is a 2010 JK Unlimited. Thanks
:D Google--- Jeep JK 33" tires--- !!

It aint just the height or width of the tire that is of concern. It's the 6" backspacing of the factory wheels. With 4.5" backspaced wheels (or spacers) and a little flare trimming (or aftermarket flairs) you can fit a 33 with little to no lift and it wont rub much.
edit: where will it rub? I've seen several inner sidewalls slashed on sway bars and on my 08 with factory wheels, 285/75's & a 2.5" BB the inner fronts would rub on the upper spring perches..
