Suggested rim size for 33's

Wife is putting 33's on her '19 JL with a 2" lift (although I'd like to see 35's). She's only driving on road, and I don't want tires sticking out too far. I haven't looked hard but so far have only found one tire to accommodate a 17" rim. Should I consider a 16" rim for 33's or stick with a 17" keeping in mind she's not off-roading?

I’d suggest looking for some Rubicon takeoffs. Many buy the Rubicon and switch tires/wheels leaving the new 33s and wheels for a good price.

Ditto. My JLUR has 33's obviously on Rubi rims (17" x 7.5") I'm putting 35's on this week with the Rancho 2" lift.
33's too small w/2" of lift imo.

There’s plenty of tires to fit 17” wheels. You can stick with the wheels you have. For on road I’d start looking at All Terrain tires. Something that will look Jeep but wear longer and run quieter. Check tires out online at Quadratec. Don’t start looking at wheels unless you plan to buy some. If you get new wheels you’ll have to deal with the pressure transmitters.

When you pick some tires, tire specs will tell you he minimum wheel width.
