Re: Rubicon wheels on grand cherokee

Mine had some light surface scratches do to test driving a rubicon at a dealership so the dealership was trying to get rid of them, i buffed them right out

Re: Rubicon wheels on grand cherokee

Again with this question before i pull the trigger I have people telling me I will need a lift kit to run 255/75r 17 tires is that true? Or will I be able to just install them without trouble
Thanks in advance

Re: Rubicon wheels on grand cherokee

This guy had them fit perfectly fine:

BFG KM 255/75/17's on stock Laredo wheels

But that was with the stock 17's that come with the '14 Laredo. The backspacing and offset of the Rubicons is probably different and may affect fitment.

Re: Rubicon wheels on grand cherokee

I saw interesting so the rubicon wheels will really make a difference? But not the tire itself

I don't know if they will honestly because I quickly browsed to try and find the offset and backspacing specs for these specific ones, but couldn't find it. I'm positive with enough searching you can though.

But yeah, the specs of the wheel make all the difference. Because of the difference of my JK Moab wheels (+44.45 offset I believe, not sure of backspacing, including my 1.25" spacers, I couldn't fit a 265/70/17 and had to go a size down, when I know others have fit that size with no problems. But they had stock offset wheels (about +56). So it matters.
