My 2014 Trailhawk (sort of)

I just put these on today. They're off a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary edition. 17x7.5" wheels with 265/70/17 BFG Mud Terrain KM2s. I did weigh the stock Laredo 17s (61lbs) vs the new set up (81lbs). I can feel the extra weight (they are E rated) but its not bad. They are louder because its a MT but for an MT its pretty quite. Another member posted that the fronts hit the caliper spring which mine did only on the driver front, but it was very minor and only lasted maybe 1 mile. There's just a small rub mark on the spring. No harm. All and all very happy with the new set up. Other then the new wheels/tires its stock.

Enjoy!!!

That looks awesome! I was going to do the same thing, but I can't since I have the HEMI V8 (which means I have the HD brakes that are too big for 17" wheels).

Wheels look great! You should pickup a Trailhawk badge from JustForJeeps, and complete the look.

That is a good looking ride.

I am about to pick up a set of those wheels for our 2011. Does the TPMS from the WK2 work and fit ok on the Rubicon wheels?
