This might just be me...but if I want 33s and no pain on stock wheels...I came up with this answer:
BFG KM2 - 255x80R17
Shouldn't require any spacers. My issue with spacers is this: 50 dollars per spacer, 200 total. New 15 inch wheels, 500 total. 300 dollar difference, ja? 33x10.5R15 - 213 per tire. 255x80R17 - 253 per tire. 40 dollar difference, five tires, 200 bucks. So, I pay 100 dollars more, one time, to get 15" wheels that have the back spacing to run most anything (with tires) and then save (for 33" BFG KM2 anyway) 200 bucks every time I change my tires PLUS the 17" tire is 57 lbs (11 more than stock) and the 15" tire is 3 lbs lighter per wheel (tire is 3 lbs heavier than stock, wheel is 9 lbs lighter) so you'll save on fuel as well as wear and tear.
I already have 17 inch American racing mojarra wheels and 285/70/17 trail grapplers. Had the dealer take them off a jku or I wouldn't buy. I just want a wider stance. I have a small lift with TF leveling kit and 19/60 springs on 12 sport 2 door.
