That looks great, I have a white sahara as well, black top. My only concern about going up to 275-70-18 from my planned 275-65-18 is that all the tires I would want are only available in an E in the 275-70. According to Toyo website, the 275-65-18 load C AT3 are basically the same weight as the 275-70-18 Load E, which seems odd, idk just spit balling

I might have missed it in this thread forgive me if I did, but figured I'd ask the gurus. I plan on ordering a 2021 willys, if I keep the stock 17x7.5in moab wheels it comes with and slap on the Rubicon stock LT285/70R17C OWL tires should I be good to go without any rubbing etc? I figured going from 32in to 33in tires isn't a huge jump. Tires are not my forte though.

I swapped a set of rubicon tires onto stock sport rims and they measure 32” on the Jeep. No rubbing unless I’m at full turn and flex and even then I only rub on the sway bar (disconnected and pushed up out of the way)

Thanks to this forum for helping me figure out the look we was searching for! No rubbing. 18x9 Vision Manx II in a +10 offset, 275/70R18 Nitto Ridge Grappler.

Reviving an old post here...and hoping you are still active on the forum. Do have any lift or is that purely stock suspension?

2020 JL Sport S. KMC Dirty Harry’s , 17x9, -12mm offset, Falken Wildpeak 285/70/17. Stock suspension. I did have mild rubbing at max articulation in the rear with stock fenders flares. Swapped to Rubi flares all around, life is good.

33s DO rub a bit on Sport S with no lift. I didn't think there was any rub at first ... even when I turned the tires to full extremes & got out and looked. But, in a few parking instances, the tires did slightly rub the bottom of the plastic piece that bridges the bumper to the fender flare. I planned on removing those pieces, but just haven't gotten around to it.

I have a 2.5" boost (using stock suspension) boxed in my garage waiting to go on. I'm not sure yet whether I'm going to do it myself or have someone install the lift who will also do the alignment. If I put it on soon, I'll post pics.
What size tire and rim combo are you running?

so looks like it would be safe to assume that with my 2019 JLU Sport S that with 285/70 r17 tires I could put them on my stock rims and not rub at full articulation off road?

No lift or spacers. I’m running 285/70/R17 Nitto Grappler G2 on Quadratec 41 wheels 5.2 backspace and + 10 offset. I wanted some the tires to poke out some, not a lot. This was perfect for what I wanted. I almost went with the. Rubicon extreme wheels, which’s would have poked out more.
