yes, but expect minor rubbing when you flex, if your jeeps not lifted at all, and check that the pattern is 5X4.5

They won't fit without the proper backspaced wheels or wheel spacers and a lift.

I ran 33x12.50/15's on my 97 tj with no lift for about a week. Definitely no offroading and go slow over speedbumps. Backing up at full lock to the left would rub.
