305/45R22x9 Wheels and Tires 33" OD

Yes you can fit (a tight fit at that) 33" overall diameter wheels/tires with a few minor modifications. My actual set-up is 32.8" overall diameter according to the spec sheet, but close enough. I bought a Rocky Road Outfitters Leveling Kit for $175 and spent $300 for installation at the local Jeep dealership. The leveling kit lifts the front end 1.75" while leaving the rear the same as factory. I put 305/45R22 Falken STZ05 All Season Tires on a 22"x9" Chrome SRT8 Spider Monkey Wheels with a +34 Offset. The look is level and slightly lifted plus you gain another inch of ground clearance from the bigger overall diameter of the wheels/tires. The ride remains factory like and quiet and handling is slightly improved. I have not had any issues or rubbing, but the fit is very tight and occasionally under extreme articulation or turning over a bump I get a slight rub against the felt liner. Overall I am very happy and thought others might like to see what is possible. You can see all of my Jeep photos at the Jeep Garage tab.

Looks badass! Did you have to do the pinch weld mod?

No. I just did the RRO leveling kit and the +34 offset wheels. It's tight but works for me.
