so I’m going to put 33 rubi take offs on my
Jl sport. Now would have the larger tire actually increase the mileage on the odometer reading faster?

decrease..
odometer will read lower than actual... larger tires... speedometer will read lower vs your actual speed, less miles registered on odometer.. etc

No issue other than you will see less of 8th gear if you have an automatic.. KO2s are naturally (slightly) smaller for their size.. the 33 KO2s are really not much larger than some true 32s out there.

For comparisons sake, my Falken 33s are 33.4" while 33 KO2s are 32.8", my old Goodyear 32s are 32.1"

You shouldn't notice any difference to speak of. I've been running that since October and don't notice any difference. I'm like 1 mph off at 60mph.

Just 2 and a half inch spaced lift right now. That’s why I wanna go a little bigger. Bc I feel like my 265 k02 look small but could be due to the fact that I have the factory sport bright silver colored wheels.

You could get a tazer, or have a dealer reprogram for the new tire size.
My 285/70/17s are going on Tomorrow and dealer is reprogramming for me.
