I used to have an 06 Unlimited. no lift. ran 33x9.50/15's on the OE 15x8 Alloys. no rubbing. tight fit but looked awesome. I went with the BFG All Terrains. I think the reason I could run 33's without a lift is that I only went with 9.50 width. they were awesome in the rain and snow too.
btw....mine was a 6sp. the 33's did NOT 'kill my gas mileage'. I couldn't have the speedo recalibrated because if was a 6sp, so I adjusted for the larger diameter and revs when I calculated my MPG's. check 'tirerack.com' for tire sizes and dimensions. for instance, if there is a 10% difference in the number of revs from your OE tire to the new one, then the number of miles traveled will be off 10% as well. factor that in and you should be fine. while the larger tires do weigh a bit more, your MPG's shouldn't suffer that much, if at all.
good luck with your search!
