Newbie question -15" wheels on 2011 JKU

I have owned my jeep for less than a month and have already got the itch to mod. I have been reading this forum constantly for days and it has been a wealth of information. I have found someone locally trying to sell some 33-12.50-15 Dick cepek fun country 2 Tires with 10x15 black gloss pacer wheels-set of 5 for 1K. Says they only have 500 miles on them, sounds like a good deal. This is the tire and wheel size I would like to go with, but I have read on several posts that 15" wheels cannot just be put on and may require spacers on my year Jeep. If this is the case, could someone link me to some recommended spacers so I can read up on them and have some pricing ideas. I am not only new to Jeeps, but have no real prior mechanical knowledge either. Trying to dive in head first.

Also, if anyone owns these fun country 2's and could let me know how they perform or look on your JK, I would be grateful. Let me add that I plan on adding probably a 2-2.5 inch lift to the jeep. I do not have plans to do too much offroading at this time, this is a DD and I need the kids to be able to get up in the Jeep w/o rope ladders .

Thanks in advance for your help. I am loving my Jeep stock thus far and also loving reading the forum and seeing the awesome mods you guys have done.

You'll want 8in wide rims not 10 if you plan to air down for offroading. 10in wide rim is to wide for a 12.5in wide tire. A 10in rim will work but you just can't air down much. Spacers of any kind are not recomended but if you want to go the route your looking at then you'll need these Jeep TJ Conversion Adapters
