33/12.5 R 17 on Standard Jeep 7.5

Good day all
I want to fit 33/12.5 R17 Bf Goodrich A/T to a standard 7.5 Jeep wheel, would this work.
I do a fair amount of dune driving, from the dunes we mostly move back through the rock.
Any ideas, remember that recourses are limited i.e. not a lot of chooses.
Thanks

I'd say you'd be ok, generally I go by the ol rule of tire width=no more than 4" over wheel width...but for your purposes you'd probably be ok, although a 33 on a 17" tall wheel will create some significant sidewall buldge.

You should be fine. We have guys running 35x1250's on the stock wheels just fine. You will need wheel spacers though.

Let us know if we can help get you setup!

they will fit without wheel spacers but rub just a bit at full lock.

i ran nokian vative MT's in a 33x12.50x17 on stock rubi wheels for a while on my 4 door.

31 jeeps in... still have issues
