New guy, dumb question??

Hey all. New to the forum, joined mainly to pick you guys brains. I'm a future Jeep owner. Doing research. Question I'm wondering about today is, will 33" tires go under a stock Rubicon? If not, how much lift will I need? Thanks, Joe

Rubicon JK or Rubicon TJ? Answers likely a little different.

On the 2007+ Rubicon, you can get a 33" tire under there provided that you are using aftermarket wheels or wheel spacers. However, keep in mind that when offroad you will have rubbing issues when flexed. Would be best to run a small lift kit, even if it's a coil spacer kit.

Biffgnar, I don't know the difference between a JK and a TJ. Sorry.

I want to put Rubicon wheels and tires on my JK Sport. Related issue does anyone know if they will fit?

33x10.5 will rub . at lock in flex more, on a Jk. find a skinny 33 say 9.5 would work well very little rubbing.

33x12.5 will rub more and at lock in flex it may well remove the front fenders with the needed backspace <2 inch lift and bumps with stock fenders.


On any Jk its the plastic fenders that hold you back. Remove them you could about get a 37 in there with a little trimming.

Tj you need a sawzall.
