i just found these wheels and tires for a steal!! 255/75/17 jk rubicon wheels and tires(bfg mt's) but im concerned they wont fit..
-do jk wheels need wheel spacers to fit on wj's?
-i have a Daystar 2 inch budget boost, will these still rub?
i think this is a deal considering they have 75% tread left..
what do you all think?
thanks in advance if you have any experience with jk wheels on a wj..

Mike I don't know much about the offset on the Rubi wheels but I do know that you're gonna need about 2" more lift to even have a hope of clearing those tires. They measure out at over 32" tall. Sorry Buddy

I run the same wheel and tire size on my wj. With the JK rims too. Had to go to 3" of lift, and pound in my pinch seam in the rear. I run an ARB front, so I didn't have any issues there, but I believe you would have to trim to wheel it. I do occasionally have the tires rub on the shocks though at full flex without sway bars on.

well ill keep looking for some new tires. thanks guys.
does anyone know if the sahara 18's will fit, i cant remember the tire size they run stock but its probably close to the rubicons so im guessing they wont..

Buy em,sell the tires(They'd be a steal at $100 or so apiece) and buy new ones.I'm sure 2mo old 32"mud T/As wouldn't last a day in the 4 sale section even for close to 5 bills http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....TAKM&tab=Sizes
