Wheel upgrade

I'm new to the forum appreciate all the advice yall can offer. Looking to go bigger with tires on my 75th Anniversary Sahara Unlimited. Thinking of going with 33x10.5r17 with "1.5 spacers to keep my stock bronze rims that match the bumpers and accents. Any advice on specific tire and spacer brands. Also would I need a relocation bracket for the spare on the rear carrier? Thanks.

On spacers, make sure they are concentric. That is not a brand name. It is that the load is on the pilot diameters, like a factory rim. I think Iron Rock and others sell Spidrex brand that is concentric. They are USA made and twice the price. I did get a pair off of Ebay, that was concentric and about 1/2 the price.

Concentric just means the circles or arcs of something share the same center point. What you're looking for is "hub centric" in the description.
