33" Question

Ok, so we have an 05 LJ, I have installed a 3" lift and I just received the new wheels. They are 17X8.5 AEVs. I want to put 33s on these wheels. I am looking for opinions on if I should go with a 33X12.50, or would a 33X10.50 be better.

Thaks, Doug

I like my 255/85/16s. ( 33.2x10.5). 3.25" lift in front, 2.75 in rear,,, no rubbing even at full articulation with discos disconnected ... Wide tires are fine, but your MPGs will suffer, and I think your steering, and suspension components will wear out sooner... Just my opinion, many may disagree, but, the closer you stay to stock, the happier your jeep will be..

That makes sense, thanks. I like the look of a taller narrower tire anyway. I am sure that has something to do with my affinity towards old Willys.

Thanks, Doug
