What rims are these? Will 33"s fit?

Could anyone tell me anything about these rims? I have a 2001 tj 60th anniversary edition.
I'm about to put a lift 2 inch bb on it and was planning on getting 33"s but was wondering if they'd fit on these rims. They have 31"s on them now which rub, would the 33" rub with the 2 inch lift? Is the backspacing enough??

Thanks in advance

15x7 rim as I recall... how wide is the 33 you want? My guess it will still rub.

Without some 1-1.5" spacer they will rub.

Those look like stock XJ rims.. Had them roll of the line with those on my old O1 XJ.. You won't have enough back spacing on them me thinks even with a 33x10.5 witch isn't all to common these days.. Also I'm thinking with only 2in of lift you would be stuffing 33's in there and leave little room for flex..

I'm guessing they're different to the rubicon rims? Do they have different backspacing?

Yeah.. Rubi Rims are different just from being 16in rims versus the XJ's 15in rims.. Although with that said a 16in rim was offered on some XJ's for some of the comfy pkgs Jeep had for them.. Still a different backspacing though..

It is called a "Grizzly" wheel by jeep. They used them on TJ's and XJ's.

Factory spec's for it....

15x7 aluminum
5 on 4.5" bolt pattern
Backspacing = 5.5"

random google picture...

Yep, not all of the Grizzly wheels are painted gray either. Some are just plain aluminum.

To add to that they are a good light weight rim for a stock jeep

They're perfect condition. All five of them. Don't think the spare has ever been used..

Do you think they'll still rub if I stay with my 31"s and then add the bb?

2" lift for 31" tires, and if you are switching rims go for 3.75" backspace. 4" lift for 33's and even then you may need 1" body lift. I put a 4" lift on my rubicon to get 33's under it-plenty of room now, and running 33" x 12.5" x 15" Cepek Crushers, on 15" x 8" rims...gives me plenty of sidewall flex on airdown for obstacles. 3.75" backspace...now the rubicons come with stock extra 'lift' compared to a TJ, but 4" should work-friend of mine did the same lift on his TJ and went to 33"s. I have more clearance than he does but he hasn't 'stuffed' the tires with any problem even with disconnects.
Same rim/stud patterns will fit YJ, TJ, and cherokees...we've swapped tires on rims between 94 YJ, 03 TJ, 95 and 99 XJ's...so you should have no problem selling those rims on an XJ site...they'll look good under a cherokee.
