    33 inch tires, wheel specs needed.

    Iíve got a 2 door JL Sport S. Iíve got a Rough Country 2.5 inch lift with shocks that I plan on installing. Wanting to go with 33x12.50R17 or R18s. I would like to get aftermarket wheels but stay with the factory flares, and want the wheels to stick out only about an inch or inch and a half from the flares. Only have had limited experience with this on my old JK, but what would be an ideal wheel width and offset to stay around?

    Backspacing of 4.5Ē would be fine.

    I'm running a 275/70r18 on stock Sahara rims. I think they're 10.8 inches wide and they're a tight fit but don't rub. A 12.5 on stocks will definitely rub w/o spacers or new wheels with more backspacing.
