Re: Jeep grand cherokee rubicon

So I would need new nuts that match our studs and JK lug nuts for the spacers correct?

Re: Jeep grand cherokee rubicon

Great post, inspired me to do the same on mine. Ended up paying $900 for a set of 5 with less than 100 miles on them. They fit on an MY14 Laredo E 4x4 without the leveling kit. I used my stock TPMS and lug-nuts. Did some urban off roading and zero issues with clearance. Just put on the RRO leveling kit (a real pain in the ass on the 4x4 model) to add a little extra clearance on the front bumper.

I went with the Rubi wheels on mine as well. I couldn't stand the tire noise from 25-45 mph though so I switched the tires to the Cooper St Maxx in a 255/70r17. Much quieter and still a nice aggressive tire. I have the QL and it doesn't rub at any height.

Re: Jeep grand cherokee rubicon

I love the hood decal and red tow hooks you added.. I ended up changing my tires also and went with the Cooper A/T 3. Still aggressive looking and much more quite for the wife.
