I have a 2011 stock sahara unlimited and was wondering if 33x12.50x15 tires and 15x8 wheels will fit with no problems or do i have to do install a lift, or use wheel spacers?

I can't answer the part about whether you will need a lift or wheel spacers, but I can tell you that not all 15" wheels will fit the JK's. There are a few posts flying around the web where people have made a list of the ones that do work. The funny part is, some of the wheels work for some people and then they don't for others. It kind of seems like all of the JK's are different. I have ProComp Series 98 Rockcrawlers in 15x8, 3.75" backspacing with 33x12.5R15's and they fit just fine. I installed a Teraflex 2.5" lift kit at the same time I changed my wheels and tires though.

33's will fit but they will be close to rubbing. If u plan on keeping it on the street 33's will work but you need to make sure your rims have a 4.5 back spacing or your rear sway bar links will hit the tire. As for 15" rims like the other guy said some work and some dont. I would just go with a 16" rim of you can.

I had 15x8 Pro Comp 1069 wheels and 33x12.50x15 BFG KM2 tires. It looked great with a 2.5" lift but, my Jeep did not like them. I had constant shimmy in the steering wheel and it just did not feel comfortable. They were balanced numerous times with no success. I swapped with someone with 17"wheels and 35's and It was night and day as far as ride quality and no shimmy. I am going to put larger tires on my stock 18's.... I know there has been success with some folks running 15’s but after my experience I would not recommend it
