Need Help Researching Tires/Rims

I am a new jeep owner -- 2015 Wrangler Unlimited Sport. I read a few threads about the max tire/rim size that could fit on a stock jeep with no lift but i have seen some conflicting posts. If someone could help me understand what the max tire size is that could fit with no (or at least minimal) contact with the fenders, well, etc... i would greatly appreciate it. i am trying to learn what the tallest tire with the smallest backspacing is that can fit with 17"+ rims. Hope this makes sense.

Sounds like you're going in the right direction. You can go all the way to a 35" tire (or metric equivalent) without a lift but any time do any flexing at all, you will get rubbing. 33" tires are probably your best bet but lots comes down to the back spacing too. Here's a great thread that explains it all, it's kind of long but there's lots of great input there.

I went with 18" rims with -12 offset and LT325-60R18 Toyo AT2s. Also did .75" level kit which wasn't required. No rubbing issues at all. They're about 13" wide and give it a nice wide stance. See photo.
