Question Stock Rims and Tire width?

I currently have this jeep:

These tires are 30x9.5 r15's

I like these rims and would like to keep them. I am thinking of a 2-3 inch lift but I cant decide on the width of the tire. I was told with these rims if I go much past 10.5 I could get some rubbing. I guess because of backspacing or something? I would like 33x11.5 R15's. Will this work? Any one have some pics of this rim with some larger tires? Any info would be great!

Yes, 33x11.5 will fit the 15x8 rims. Some tire rubbing at full lock . . . maybe. But you can 1) adjust the stops (I think you can on a TJ) or 2) live with it.

However, I prefer the sidewall charachteristics of a 10.5 wide tire on a 15x8. While not as widely availible, some tires can be found on 33x10.5, most notably BFG MTs and ATs - this is what I will be doing in a few months.
