Damn that looks so SEXY! As soon as I pick up my WKII, KM2's or Trail M/T's on these wheels are VERY enticing

Re: Jeep grand cherokee rubicon

What was needed to fit the wheels? Clearance issues? Any rubbing? Thx!

Re: Jeep grand cherokee rubicon

Hey,
I think it looks great. Thinking of doing the same mod. to my '13 limited. Did I read right, you switched from the leveling kit to the full lift? Why the switch? Also, did you opt for the new upper control arms as well, or just the spacers? Thanks!

Re: Jeep grand cherokee rubicon

Would the Rubicon Wheel set fit without the RRO leveling kit?

Yes but you would have to test different tire sizes for rubbing.

Re: Jeep grand cherokee rubicon

well some bad news.... I went ahead and purchased at set..... with out wheel spacers they will hit the brakes on a 2014 GC OL Ecodiesel ......... man did they look great in the back, but the brakes don't allow a 17" tire to fit so well......


I should add this was a trial.... and its not very off from fitting, like within a few mm of fitting

I just picked up a used set for super cheap and have not had the chance to test fit. Was going to do same with my EcoDiesel... Let me know what spacers you go with. They have to work some how... They looked great on the orange jeep concept.

I think they either A ground the brakes down or B ground the rims down, its like a mm or two from fitting....

Re: Jeep grand cherokee rubicon

Why don't you guys just buy spacers if you want them to fit so badly?

Only $200 or so for BORA spacers, which many owners use here, including myself, that are from Motorsport Tech.

Worth the investment, IMO and it gives the Jeep a better offset/stance.

I don't suggest cheap-o spacers because they can create a lot of problems and be dangerous, but I guess that decision is up to you. If they happen to be reputable and trustworthy, then go for it. But the only spacers I've heard Jeep owners repeat over and over again are Spidertrax and Motorsport Tech BORA spacers.

I also like to rep Motorsport because they are located in my hometown, do really good work and are very helpful.
