    33x12.5R17 on stock 2014 JKU Sahara

    i have a stock 2014 JKU Sahara and wanted to install 33x12.5R17 tires.
    i don't want to lift or modify something on the jeep and i don't intend to offroad it.
    based from what i've read on this site, is that a stock JK can accomodate up to 33-inch tire max ( in stock form)
    my question is....... are there any rims with enough back spacing to fit a 12.5 wide tires without rubbing???
    wheel spacers are a no no to me.

    thanks.

    Call just jeeps. I think they see enough jkus and can order pretty much any rim you can get
    My jeep wears a bra, maybe you should too

    Yes you can run 33's on a JK and JKU with aftermarket rims with no rubbing unless you wheel and flex it they will hit the plastic flares...

    You need to find rims with 4.5" backspacing or less I recommend something like the rugged ridge rims just go look at a dealer lot... there full of JKs brand new with rugged ridge rims and 33" MTZ tires in stock form...

    any other questions about jks just tag me some how so I know because I just skim the titles and I thought this was a for sale ad so didn't bother looking at it since I haven't bought 33s for years haha

    thanks for the info......

    whenever i ask somebody on a stock JK with larger and wider tires they all says they are using 1.5 to 2 inch wheel spacers.
    i went to the dealer where i got my jeep and they have a tire and rim combo package 305/65/R17 LT Mickey Thompson MTZ and Classic Mickey Thompson black rims 3.25 backspacing for $4999 set of 5, this is too expensive in my opinion.

    Guess you went to Peel...

    We do a lift and some other stuff for the same price with the same rims and tires. We sell to dealers all the time and tell them to limit the suspension, lift it or mod/change the flares with 33's and a large offset rim. Most of them decide not to do anything and slap them on then tell their customers to come see us when they pop the clips holding the rear flares on from contact.

    We will put 33's on a JK with no mods but do to having issues previously we put a disclaimer on your paperwork stating if you do contact we are not responsible.

    yes i got my jeep from Peel, but during that time in 2014 they don't have this option to sell a brand new jeep with aftermarket larger tires but now they do.
    i haven't been to Just Jeeps in years..... i used to go there alot when i had a 94 YJ and a 2004 TJ. Alex and Stu are very helpful...... are they still there???

    for me wheel spacers are a NO NO
    based from what i've read on various threads.... 4.5" backspacing on aftermarket rims with 12.5 wide tires will still rub some components and 3.25" is what they recommend

    Alex left, sold his Jeep and works for a Ford dealership in Parry Sound as a licensed tech.

    Stu left, sold his Jeep and not sure what his is doing now.

    Been researching this as well for at least a month for my stock 2015 sport unlimited. That size tire u should go with 1.5" spacers. Even if u don't intended to off road u may get some rubbing at full steering wheel turn without them

    As mentioned previously 3.25 to 3.5 bs and 2" bb will let run 33's without any rubbing while disconnected offroad. You can run 33's with no lift but its tight to the fenders. No wheelie wheelie without a budget boost. Looking for a set? I've got 5 used on rims for sale pm me for details.

    i run 305/70/16 dick cepek mud country tires on 16" pro comp 7069 rims with a 4" back spacing i also installed a 2.5" rough country spacer kit and have never had it rub. i ran for 3 months without the lift and never rubbed but i never wheeled it during that time and avoided excessively rough roads during that time. I have never had the tires rub on any steering or suspension components during full steer with the 4" backspacing on the rims. i believe wheel spacers will be illegal in this province july 1 as per the new vehicle safety standards
