They should have made Anvil available in the Trailhawk. Contrasts well with the black and red accents.
exactamundo!! now, if I can just get 100% confirmation of what I will need in order to make them fit, I will jump on those.

I just need to know if there is a spacing issue (i believe there is from the other guys on here) and if so, then what sort of spacers do I need etc etc.

If you have a WK2, in a V6, you will not need anything additional. I have the 2012+ Rubi wheels & BFG M/T's on mine and they fit with no rub. I'm thinking of a leveling kit to help the stance but definitely changes the look. My inspiration is the Trailhawk II concept.

LOL, join the club on the trailhawk II front..

Yea, I have a V6 2013 Laredo.

These are the wheels I wanna get:

17 Jeep Wrangler Commander Rubicon JK Grand OEM Factory Stock Wheels Rims OPS | eBay

So, you can verify that there is no rubbing even with the MT's and no spacing issues that need to be addressed prior to installation? BC I want the AT's to reduce the road noise?

You have any pics of her that you could post?

Thanks. . I think it completely changes the look of the Grand. Don't think you can go wrong with either Rubi wheel on a WK2.

My word to describe the road noise would be substantial (had the 18's w/ Michelin Latitudes before). I was and somewhat still debating on a switch to an A/T.

They fit the laredo but you might need small wheel spacers

Re: Does anyone have info on this rig

Those black JK wheels are nice, but spendy. I'd just get the black Mopar accessory WK2 wheels. They will for sure fit.

You have the 2013 Rubicon's on there or the prior years set? I looked at some of your prior posts and it shows the 13's?
