biggest tire for stock JK

I want to put a 33" all-terrain on my new 2 door. Anybody know if I can do this without a lift? If not, what's the biggest I can go as she sits?

32s come stock on the Rubicon, and there is plenty of room for 33s with no problems (on any trim package). Once you go up to 35s you need more lift but also less backspacing because the tires are all at least 12.5" wide. New wheels or spacers are the fix for that.

I have heard reports of 285/70R17 fitting with no wheel spacers and 295/70R17 fitting with wheel spacers and no lift. Anybody tried 305/70R17s with no lift? Id be courious to know?

I am looking at 295/75-16(around a 33.4) because i want to get some black cragars. So these would fit on my jeep stock. I want to get the taraflex leveling kit kit but would rather get the wheels/tires first.
