2013 JKU.. First Jeep

Whats going on everyone, not sure if this the right section to post in, but oh well. Im currently on a tour in Afghanistan and while being at one of the bases i decided to check out the Military car place, ended up purchasing a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited !! i always wanted one, and finally i have one! i have some questions (yes i will do my research but if i can get some guidance to save time it would be greatly appreciated) i purchased the sport, with max tow package, upgraded sound system, 3 piece hard top, anti-slip, power convenience package, 6spd manual, my plans for the jeep are mainly DD use, maybe some mild off-roading, and pulling a trailer or boat. i really want to order my wheels & tires while im here so when i get home i can just put them on.. i want 33"s what is the biggest tire i can put on stock with out rubbing? i come from the Euro car scene so what can i expect with a jeep? this is completely new to me and as i am trying to do as much research as i can about mods, i just dont have the time. thanks

Welcome and thanks for the service.

Definitely check out the "will it rub" thread in the stickies section of JK Tech.

In short, you can run 33s on stock suspension. If you want to go with a wider than stock tire width, you'll need rims with 4.5" backspace or less. You can also run a 33x12.50 on stock rims if you get 1.5" wheel spacers if you just want to keep the rims you have for now.

Hope this helps, do lots of research before buying and get home safe!
