32 vs 33 inch tires

Going to be getting a 2016 Rubicon. They come with 32 inch tires from what I hear. Apparently 33inch tires are the biggest you can put on there without getting a lift.

Has anyone had issues with 33inch tires? Trying to figure out if 1 more inch is worth the cost of getting a new set of tires out of the gate.

Il probably have to special order the Jeep because I want manual transmission and no one (at least in Southern California) ever has any in stick. Think it would be possible to get 33s on there from Jeep directly?

You can not get 33's from jeep directly. Your dealer however can put some on for you but you would do better buying from someone like Discount Tire. Stock rubicon tires are about 31's at most and the new BFG KO2 34x10.5-17 is about a 32" tire. It will rub slightly off road and while cranked fully right backing up unless you run spacers with your stock rims..

I'm going to be putting different wheels on the Jeep right away. Just debating wether or not to replace the tires out of the gate as well

I have a 2015 Rubicon with stock BFG Mud-Terrain T/As and they are 32 inches in diameter. I measured the spare to buy a wheel cover so I needed to know they exact size.

BFG's website even states that tire is 32.1 inches. Not sure what tire you are measuring, but I'm sure the OP's 2016 will have the same tire.
