Yup... same measurement (height and width) as the Goodyears shown above.

I'm hoping they'll come out with that size in the AT's by the time these wear out.

The 17" Rubi wheels do not fit on an overland. The 18's from a Sahara will. Now to find some good M/T's! And yes my overland will wheel.

Where my WK2 wheels ended up...

From this...



To this...



Our WJ was in serious need of new tires. It feels like new again.

Re: Moab Wheels on my WK2 - 255/75/17 - Photos

You have me intrigued. I've wanted to put moabs on my wk2 since I got it. Traded my jk in on it and almost went back to moabs a couple times on the jk. Everyone says they won't fit even though they are same specs except for offset as the factory rims. I have the base Laredo v6 as well. Why is everyone saying they won't fit yet you have them on? Gonna have a test fit with a guy that has some for sale locally but don't want to get my hopes up. So have you noticed any rubbing now that you have had them on?

I've had them on for over 3 months with zero rubbing.

Just wondering if you have any more pics of your setup. I am looking to do the exact same thing (deciding between 2013 and 2014 Moabs).

Hows it been otherwise? Any issues?

Look closely. They do not appear to be Silent Armors.

Re: Moab Wheels on my WK2 - 255/75/17 - Photos

Not sure if you guys are still watching this thread, but I just picked up a set of 2013 18" 7 spoke chrome wheels wrapped in 255/70r18 bridgestones on them. Since I am rocking a stock height 2013 Laredo E-Group, will there be any tire clearance issues at all? Lock to lock or bumps?

Just wondering.

Thanks.

They are kind dusty, but only have 200 miles on them.

Just wanted to chime in on the Moabs and fitment with the 2014 WK2 V6 Laredo E.

I just went to have the set installed with Blizzaks I ordered, but low-and-behold, they hit the brake rotors. I had to have them put on my stock wheels for the time being and figure out something to do. The guys at Discount Tire also said no way to using spacers to solve the problem...

They wont do spacers due to liability issues, did they hit too much? I grinded mine a bit and they fitted, tight but fit. You can install the spacers urself and be good.

They did touch the brakes just barely but enough to not make them work. I wasn't going to even consider putting a grinder to the leased Jeep, so I'll be getting some BORA spacers soon.
