33s (32.3" actually) on a stock lj rubi

so i got a deal on some rims i could not pass on.
i got some free 285 70 17 michelins bout 1/4 tread left(32.3 tall).
im gonna sell my graphite moabs to fund more of the build.
im currently stock height.
im not driving the jeep at all, and for sure wont go off road.
it will have a 1" body lift, and currie 1" motor mounts in a couple weeks.
i got the bl and mounts, just gotta install them.

if the wife needed it to drive to work in a pinch, would it damage anything.
its like 5 miles on side roads.

its just a toy, and gets driven very little. just dont wanna bend anything up.

i know its not a great set up, but i think it will be fine.
once the body lift is in, im not worried.
i might add a little to my bumpstops, when doing the body lift.

anyone done something similar?

When I first bought my 05 LJ Rubi it was all stock.

I had a set of 33x10:50 tires from my previous Tj.........I put them on and ran for a little while. They were okay as long as I did not have the jeep weighted down with a load of cargo or several passengers and avoided large bumps.

I have driven it a little with the big tires. Its a tight fit! It will rub if I go up my driveway too fast.
It has the shakes from about 44mph to about 58 mph. Above or below that its fine.
Its got 100k miles on it. Still on the factory everything pretty much. No surprised it shakes.

Was it shaking before you put the tires on? If it wasn't its probably just the tires need to be balanced

No. It was real smooth b4. But it had 245 75 16 dunlop street tires.
they were balanced, but they are used free tires. Decent michelins though.
im gonna rotate the fronts to the rear, see if It changes any.
im gonna look over the front end pretty close.
its got 100k miles on mostly all stock parts.
