Rims/tires for 4in lift

My rcd 4in lift should be in Monday and I need to order rims and tires. The kit said it would allow 35 inch tires but I think I'm going to go with 33's. What kind of rum am I going to need with 33 12.50s. Will I need some sort of spacer? Just looking for some good recommendations from people more experienced and/or smarter than myself.

Should have plenty of room for 33s. What kind of spacer do you mean for the wheels?

I prefer Bacardi silver 86 proof myself.

15x8" wide wheels with 3.75-4" backspacing will work great.If you want them to stick out less past the flares,go with 4.5" backspacing.
My 05' with 33x12.50's and 3.75" backspaced wheels (10" wide,not 8").

I have fat fingers and I was using a tiny keyboard and rum is not really my thing, I'm more of a crown man.

I was reading elsewhere on some searches and somebody mentioned needing wheel spacers to clear 33s.

Thanks for the info and that's a great looking jeep I think I'm going to run the same setup. But your suggesting 15x8 instead of 15x10?

I like the stance of a 10" wide wheel like my blue Jeep.Most people prefer 8" wide wheels to hold a bead better when airing down really low offroad.
