I think with 6" wheel spacers and a sawzall, you could run 40's...

OK, so I have the same question sort of. Is there any minimum back space you need to run 33s and will they rub at full flex? just wondering, bought an 08 a week ago. My third Wrangler and it is clearly the best yet.

You can run 32s with no rub whatsoever..............even at full stuff. 33s are questionable, depends on wheels and a variety of other factors. I know guys that run them successfully and others that required a BB to get full clearance. You definately need a lift for 35s and bigger.

The largest stock tires are 32's any bigger and they rub. 33's rub at flex and tight turn. Now with a lift, proper backspacing and fender removal hey the sky is the limit till the front and back rub on each other.
Edit: Regearing and what not can and will be necessary with anything bigger than 35's.

I am going with a 2.5” lift and an extra .75 in the front to level things out. I was (am) planning on running 33” x 12.5’s and now I am thinking this may be too small of tire. Anyone have this set up and could you all let me know what you think?:shaking:

35's with a 2.5 lift will definately rub if flexed and discoed.

Well like I said I am going with the 2.5 with a ¾ spacer so that adds up to 3.25 on the front. So it sounds like the front will be fine with 35’s but how about the back?

even 2 inches in the back with bumpstops you will be fine. I would personally recomend at least 2.5" on the rear but more prefrably 3"+. Since you are going with 3.25 in front I would go 2.75 in the back to sit level. I belive the rake is .5 difference. Of course you would need to consider changes to ride height from bumpers, larger spare and gear you may be stuffing in

The key will be what you plan on doing. You can FIT 35's without any lift. Problem is you will have no room to articulate. If you are moderate off road/trail stuff then 2.5" will get you almost anywhere you want to go. If you are looking for good articulation then 3.5"+ would be my sugestion. I would recomend 6"+ if you have some sort of syndrom or just want to make up for short commings in general :smokin:
