Rims and Tires

Ok, I'm positive this question has been answered but my search on my phone isn't working great.
Bought some Mickey Baja MTZ's for a 2011 wrangler unlimited. 33x12.5 17's. Ended up being a problem in the sale and didn't get the 2011. Bought a brand new 2015 instead. Will this setup work on my new rig? Or will spaces be needed? Set up is stock of course.
Sorry if this questions been answered a million times. Thanks!

Pretty sure the only tire width that'll work on a stock rig is up to 10.5"

You will need new rims or wheel spacers. Be sure to go with good spacers like the spidertrax if you go that route

Yep, wouldn't matter if it was the '11 or the new '15. You can't go over 11.0 wide without proper offset wheels or adding wheel spacers. I ran spacers for over a year without issues, but those tires aren't "approved" by the tire manufacturer to mount on the stock 7.5" wide wheels... They need to be on a wheel that is 8.5-11 wide. Many people do it, but that doesn't make it right.

Your best bet is to bite the bullet now and buy new wheels with 4.5-5.0 back spacing. Then sell your take off wheels and tires and recoup a little $$$.

Really should've clarified the rim sizes in my first post.

Yes, perfect fit.

You might want to throw a TF 1" front spring spacer in to help with clearance up front. About $35 and easy to do.

I would love any/all opinions on the set up I'm interested in:
-stock '13 JK 2dr
-wheels: 17x9, 4.5bs, -6mm offset
-tires: 285/70/17 or 275/70/17
I have no interest in a lift or spacers. Just need a bit more aggressive tire for winters & WANT better (*prettier*) wheels, than stock. : )
Thank you in advance!
