33's on 2.5 Lift

I'm about to ditch my 31's because they are wearing down and personally I think they make my YJ look small. I found some BFG all terrain ko2 33x10.50r15 for a reasonable price. However, every thread about 33s on a 2.5in lift has mixed answers by those who agree and disagree. For the most part my jeep is a mall crawler right now, occasionally I go off road but 90% of my driving is done onroad. I've ordered some xenon flat fender flares so I get more clearance because the tires will rub OEM ones.

I run 33's on AEV Pintlers with absolutely 0 rubbing at full lock. I believe they are 4.5" backspacing. Thats without a lift. I can't imagine 33s rubbing on OEM wheels with a 2.5" lift AT ALL.

I dont know anything about the YJ, but on the JK 33s WILL rub the sway bar around 90% lock if your rims don't have enough backspacing. IIRC the stock rims have a 6.5" backspace and 4.5" is what you want to get to avoid rubbing.

2.5" clears 33's better than stock height and 31's. Maybe some slight rubbing, wouldn't suspect anything major. I think you'll be fine on stock rims, but if not grab some 1" spacers.

I'm looking at going with Cooper Discoverer STT Pro LT285/70R/17 stock rims with a 2" front, and a 1" rear leveling kit. I have been told that won't rub on my 2012 JK.

I have a 99 wrangler SE stock. Just got some brand new BFG All terrain 31x10.5 r15's I'm going to use my stock wheels. Will I have any issues with this?

I have a 2012 JK with stock 17" rims, and a 2" front, and a 1" rear lift. I just put 285\70R\17 on it and at full lock right turn it rubs the sway bar. Time for some spacers!
