Another WK2 w. Rubicon Wheels

Been a while since I've posted but that is because my Jeep has been bone stock. Just picked up these Craigslist specials. Love the fit and finish! Makes it look much more aggressive. Plus there is no wheel rub, even at full lock. A little more road noise, but I can live with that. They came off the white Rubicon in the background of one of the pics. Enjoy!

Mike

Re: Another WK2 w. Rubicon Wheels

I really like it. Definitely gives it that rugged look and the gray in the wheels compliments your granite paint very nicely.

Re: Another WK2 w. Rubicon Wheels

Agreed^

I don't usually like the granite color that much, but with those wheels, it looks great. Well chosen.

Re: Another WK2 w. Rubicon Wheels

Very tough and capable looking! Are you stock height or is there a leveling kit?

Again, looks great! Nicely done.

Re: Another WK2 w. Rubicon Wheels

They look really and good and a perfect match with the Granite.

Are they 17" or 18" rims?

Stock height. I've got a Limited with the QuadraLift system. These tires are as big as you can go without a lift.

Thank you! They are the 17" stock Rubicon rims off of a JK.

Re: Another WK2 w. Rubicon Wheels

Ahh.. they are the perfect match on your truck.

Sadly a 2015 JGC Summit Diesel needs 18" wheels to fit over brakes in the front.

Even less around here.

Looks great OP!

I really wish they'd fit my SRT. The black ones would look so sick for a winter setup. The stock 20s just barely clear the brembos

Yeah, I have the V6, which is only way the 17" wheels fit since I do not have the HD brakes.
