New tires and spacing question

I've looked and looked and can't find a satisfactory answer for this. I recently purchased a JK and want to get rid of the puny street tires it came with. I would like to keep the stock wheels since I like them and don't really want to buy new ones unless I have to.

I like the BFGoodrich MT and am wanting to get the 32x11.5. Will this be possible with the stock wheels or will I need different wheels or spacers? I would be alright with getting 30 or 31 if that is needed to avoid wheels.

Sorry for the noob question

Oh, and I have a huge list of wanted upgrades already. Plus I can't wait to head to the superlift orv park and try the tamer trails once I have decent tires and some straps.

Well, I put some 265/74 r16 Bighorns on the jeep today to see how they worked. Any rubbing offroad and I was going to add some lift and wheels. The tires convert to about 31.6x10.4 or thereabouts. Took it down some dirt trails today and through some hills and ruts and no rubbing or problems. Sorry I don't have any poser pics but I forgot my camera at home.
