I was able to put 305x50x20 (32") tires with very minor rubbing using the RRO Kit. These were installed on a +30 offset wheel.

Others have successfully installed 33x12.5x20's.

Here are some pics...My wrangler has a 3.5" lift with 35x12.5x17's for comparison.

Good Luck!

Re: wk2 lift kits

Wow that looks bad ass!! That's how it should have came from the factory. Thanks for the pictures. I'm kind of torn I really would like 22s and all terrains on it but I'm thinking sticking with the 20s is the way to go. I looked into those wheels, but they come in a 22x9.5 with the same ET30 offset so I'm thinking it's not gonna work.

20's are perfect for my taste... you may have some issues with the size you want on a 9.5' wheel (mine is 8.5) and in my opinion 22's loose too much tire sidewall and add AT's with 8 or 10 ply (D or E rated) sidewalls and it will feel like a Fred Flinstone vehicle!

Post pics when you finish....Good Luck!

Looks good! Is that just a leveling kit?

I'm sorry if you've mentioned this already but do you have spacers on? If so, what brand and size?

Re: wk2 lift kits

Old post but here is my 2 cents if anyone is still interested...I installed the Rocky Road leveling kit 1.75 top strut spacers on the front of my 2011 GC 4X4 Limited and love it. Took about 5 hours to do but the result was 2 inches of lift. Rear was slightly lower then so I added an Air Lift 1000 coil air bag system to the rear to balance out the truck (installed in about 2 hrs.) 30 lbs gives a slight rear higher elevation which looks good. When I tow my loaded utility trailer I crank up the pressure to about 50 lbs to keep level.

Off road this setup works great...no noises, banging or feeling of anything loose. Not stiff but still solid with very little side to side sway which I like. Stock 265 65 18 tire and rim size.
