JK Rubicon wheel fitment

right now my WJ has the 16" Silverblades with 245/70R16 Toyo Open Country A/T's on it. I want to put on JK Rubicon 17" wheels with the same Toyo tire but in 245/65R17. will this clear on my stock suspension, and will I need spacers?

Re: JK Rubicon wheel fitment

From what I found they have the same backspacing (6.25") and offset (50.8mm) as the factory WJ rims.

Re: JK Rubicon wheel fitment

The WJ's that came factory with 17's had 17x7.5" wheels. The JK wheels are 17x7.5" as well.

I ran the 17" JK wheels and the factory JK tires (255/75/17) with a 2" lift until I decided the tires were too big and went to a 235/65/17.

do you have any pictures of it? I plan on doing a 2" lift in the spring but I was pretty much just planning on sticking with a stock diameter tire.

Re: JK Rubicon wheel fitment

Not a problem.

I swapped those tires out for a set of 235/65/17 tires and it looks much better, even with the 2" lift. I haven't decided if I want to take the 2" lift off or not yet.

Re: JK Rubicon wheel fitment

Do you have any of the photos with the 235/65 setup?
