33's on a yj

Would these tires fit correctly on a stock 4.2 laredo YJ rim?

What size? I believe you wont have issues with a 33 10.50 but probably will with a 33 12.50

They were 33x12.50x15's... but I realize that the rims i have are 15x7 and too small for the 12.50...

You'll want a lift and rims with less back spacing, or wheel spacers.

I plan to do a 4" zone off road lift, would that be enough? or add 1" body lift as well? And I hear a lot of negative reviews on wheel spacers, for stress on the studs.

4 inch would be enough. If you don't want spacers just get new wheels with 4 inch backspacing. You can get steel wheels for around 200 a set

I found some 15x8 rims I like with -13mm offset and 3.976 of backspacing.. would those handle the 33x12.50s?
