I've seen the threads for the largest allowable tires with a stock 2-door JK (Sport), but none really go into what I can get away with using 1", 1.5", or 2" wheel spacers.

As big as you want! (technically) Spacers (too much spacing) and too much offset can cause unnecessary stress on your ball joints and axles. I am not a fan of spacers and more a believer of just getting offset. But if your're trying to be a baller on a budget, spacers work fine. 33s will rub when flexing. So many variables here.

Daily Driver?
Wheel Size?
Looks or performance?

This This will answer all your questions...

I have the same model and installed 1.5" spacers. Picked up 315/70R17 duratracs about a month ago and haven't had any real issues. Had to trim the air dam a bit but other than that no noticeable rubbing that I could tell. Only went off road once before I picked up rubi take offs (shocks and springs) but those gave me almost 2" for a little extra clearance. Didn't really get a chance to flex it much yet though.

I'm running 35's w/1.5" spacers. No lift. About a year now and not one issue. When these tires wear out I'll put on 37's. I don't think it's a big deal.
well ya the fenders are chopped! My next project after tires....
