11.5" wheel is too wide for 33x12.50R20 or 285/60/20.

check the distance between your front tire and the lower control arm when the wheels are turned. Its not just the top of the fenders you have to worry about.

Im a little confused by this thread. We have one person with 33 inch tires and 20 x 9 rims with a little scrubbing and another person with 24x 11 rims with no scrubbing both on stock suspension on the same JL... How can this be?

Back spacing and offset of wheels are not the same for all?

No rubbing with 33s on our Sport. Rubicon springs and shocks added about 1 1/4" to 1 1/2". The tires added another 1/2" for a total lift of about 2" over stock. The ride is firm but very comfortable.
We love how it turned out. :jk:

What is a reasonable price for this set up - parts and labor?

I paid $300 for the Rubicon shock and spring takeoffs and $700 for the tires from this site. (Thanks!!) My dealer replaced the shocks and springs for $300 and did the tire swap for another 80ish. Total out of pocket transformation costs was $1400. I highly recommend this for any Sport owners.

I put these on back in May, but realized that I never posted in here, despite all of the help I received from this thread!

Sport S on:
XD818 Heist 20x10: Backspacing: 4.56, Offset: -24
Toyo Open Country A/T II 33X12.50x20 (LOAD F)

I'm happy with the ride but if one thing could change: I'd like them to stick out from the fender slightly less than they do now, similar to Broclirob's 20×9 +1 offset wheels (previous page). I really wanted the deep dish look, so had to go with a 10" wheel in order to achieve that look, so slight sacrifice there.

I removed the Euro Close outs, dremmeled them down and reinstalled over the fog lamp assembly as the wheel wouldn't turn all the way with them installed. No rubbing at full turn and I honestly can't remember mileage now vs before.

Very helpful thread! Has me thinking about skipping a lift kit and just getting 33's on some 20's on my Sahara. However, would anyone with this setup expect rubbing with steel bumpers? Thanks in advance!

Finally picked up new lug nuts to try my tires off our traded in JK on our JL. LT 305/65R17 on pro comp rims they fit ok but on tight turn they will rub on the Sport and Sport S splash guard went to take the guard off but then back of fog lights are exposed

Mine rubbed with the splash guard and I removed, Dremmelled and then reinstalled the piece to cover the fogs. Works like a charm.

Great thread, I'm looking to make the switch to 33's soon for my sport s, I was thinking of going with 295/70r17 in the nitto ridge grappler. I was wondering if anyone has done this instead of the more common 285/70r17? I plan on getting M/T classic III with -12 offset for reference

Looks great! I assume no rubbing issues?
I, unfortunately, haven’t gotten to try the rubbing issues. I’m afraid they may rub on the front after the steel bumper + winch + steel guard. I’m about .75 inch lower in the front vs the back right now. I’m really fine with the look but rubbing is a concern.
