Fitting JK wheels

I have a 2006 wk with a 2in lift. I went and picked up a very nice set of JK wheels tonight. What will I have do to make these fit? Will they fit without wheel spacers?

Re: Fitting JK wheels

1 inch spacer at least. 1.25 and 1.5 are really easy to find.
Or shave down the brake calipers so the wheel doesn't touch. I personally did not want to do that.
I have jk wheels on 1.5in spacers. Haven't had any issues.

Thanks for the reply. I have found some 1.5 spacers and most likely will go that way.

Re: Fitting JK wheels

Thats what I have as well. Gives it a nice stance. A lot of people are against spacers but I have had them on for over a year with no issues.
I had 2in spacers on my old 3/4ton suburban with 37s and still had no issues.
I think you'll be fine

Re: Fitting JK wheels

Got my spacers ordered last night and should be here by next weekend. Looking forward to getting rims and tires put on.

Re: Fitting JK wheels

I thought you only needed 1/4" spacer too for the 17" JK wheels?

Re: Fitting JK wheels

That Jeep looks really good. From what I hear 1/4 in spacers is all that you need. But if you are going bigger on tires you might need more. I went bigger because I didn't want to have to change the lugs for longer ones. And also I have seen a Jeep with 1.5 in spacers and it looked nice.

Fitting JK wheels

you'll only need 1/4" spacers up front to make them fit, nothing in the rear.

I ran 1.25" spacers on JK moabs with 265/70/17's and they definitely stuck out a bit. Not enough to look bad, but the stance was perfect to me.

Heres a pic from about 2 years ago:
