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.
