my guess is 12.5 wide would be the limit.

and you could go as tall a 37"

now that is just to fit on the rim, to get that rim/tire combo on the jeep is a different story. you would need some wheel spacers to get proper backspacing an definitely a lift, unless you like the smell of burning rubber.

LOL ok for it to fit on the rim and fit on a stock jeep? I want to wait to do lifts and stuff till the warranty is warn out.

32's come standard on the Rubi, i wouldnt go taller than that. A lot of people are saying they are going to run 33's, but if they take it off road they are propably going to experience some rubbing. I'm going to leave the 32" tires on and do a 2" budget lift(spacers) and upgrade to 33's later.
