Re: Another WK2 w. Rubicon Wheels

Did you need to flash for different tire size??? Considering doing the same to my 2013 Overland Summit.

I had the dealership set up the TPMS with the new tires since the wheels came with them. I haven't noticed anything off by having the bigger tires. However, just a heads up, if you have the HD Brakes, the Rubicon rims will not fit over the calibers. Best of luck!

Re: Another WK2 w. Rubicon Wheels

I really like them. Wish there was an 18" option to fit the diesel.

Re: Another WK2 w. Rubicon Wheels

Spacers will probably help clear the HD breaks. Same with the SRT as well. I'm thinking about getting a set for my HA.

Re: Another WK2 w. Rubicon Wheels

@italianjeeper, did you have to have the alignment done after?

I did not have anything changed with the suspension, and did not need to do anything with alignment. The tires were balanced and in great shape as they came off a 2015 Rubicon. The only thing I had done was the TPMS flashed for the new sensors that came with the wheels. Hope that helps!

Re: Another WK2 w. Rubicon Wheels

Love it! Gonna do the same to my red altitude. I'd prefer the black hard rock wheels, but if I can't find them in my price range, I'll just plasti-dip the grey ones. I think the black would look best with the altitude theme. I think I'll keep my stock wheels for daily drivers and use the Rubicons for my winter/off-road fun. Anyone know if a re-flash is required for the new wheel/tire size?

Re: Another WK2 w. Rubicon Wheels

I know this is an old post- but I have the same rims and tires on my '12 overland with the hemi hd brakes. I put on 1.75" spidertrax spacers and I don't have problems with rubbing even with the quadra lift. Just wanted to give my experience for anyone wondering!

They are as big as you can go without any rub issues. I can turn the wheel left and right lock and no problems. The suspension is bone stock and I also do not have Quadralift. There are a couple other WK2s rolling around this site with the same set up, so I made sure it would work before I left with the wheels. I do not have a single complaint, I love the look and get compliments from other Jeep owners all the time. Cheers!

Mike
