Tire size question, rubi wheels on a sport jku

I am thinking about getting Toyo Open Country tires. I am going to get Rubi wheels(getting them free, stock tires are worn), they are going on a sport JKU. What's the biggest size tires I can put on rubi wheels on a stock sport JKU ?
I don't want to lose much if any turning radius.

I'd say 31x10.50. I wouldn't recommend going any bigger otherwise you you lose turn and maybe risk rubbing if you bottom put your suspension.

With 33s you might experience rubbing that can likely be solved with wheel spacers.

Additionally if you do any off roading you might need bump stop extensions or to trim your fenders.

Just be cautious with spacers because I have heard of them letting go and tires falling off. When it gets too cold they can get brittle. And they can screw up your wheel bearings.

Agreed, the only spacers I would consider are Spidertrax.
