Will these wheels fit my 2008 wk?

Front two tires on my wk are almost toast. Currently the car has the stock forteas on. I believe they are 245/65/17. My question is will these wheels fit my car?

I know there is a issue with wrangler wheels rubbing against calipers, not sure if these will rub or not. Any suggestions/can anyone confirm that these will fit.

Re: Will these wheels fit my 2008 wk?

Bolt pattern wise, they will fit. Worst that is gonna happen is they will slightly rub your front bake caliper. That can be solved either by adding on longer studs and a minimum 1/4" wheel spacer, or grind down the caliper at the contact points just enough to where they don't rub. Good price if those are really OEM redone to Chrysler standards on run out and so forth.

You shouldn't have an issue at all. The stock WK wheels specs are: 17"x7.5", 6.25" backspace, +50.8mm offset, 5x5 bolt pattern. The JK wheels you are looking at have the same specs except for the offset. They are +44. That means they will stick out almost 8mm further than the stock wheels.

Granted. But I thought the problem has always been the thicker spokes on the wheel that rub the front brake caliper, inspite of the fact that on paper the offset would say other wise? The OP should report his findings on here for reference. Maybe this design is bolt and go.

Tey will definitely fit, but it's very close to the front calipers. I'd mount spacers with at least 5mm.
Got these wheels from a JK with the stock 245/75/17 GY AT Armors with 25mm (1") spacers along with a 2" RC lift, fits perfect.
