The rim lug pattern on your Wrangler is: 5 lug- 4.5 pattern.
The tires you are buying need a 15" tall rim. You could go with a 8" wide or 10" wide rim. I like the look of 8" better. You make the call.
Rim: 15" tall, 8" wide, 5- 4.5 pattern
your tires are 33 x 12.5" wide made for a 15" tall rim.

Stick to the 15x8 it will work better for your 33x12.5s.

Many like the 15x8, But I run 15x10's and have never popped a bead and have been to 8psi before with no problems. Like said above its up to you on rim size, 15x10 will make it look wider, 15x8 they say will hold the bead better, I cant say they are wrong or right, Because i have always ran 15x10 and never had a problem. What you will wheel in/on could be a better deciding factor. Either one will work good, Just make sure you get 5x4.5 and a minimum of 4"backspacing, 3.75 is what i would go for. Good luck
