Rubicon Wheels?
 
I know that everyone asks this question and I did do some searching, I just want too be sure before I buy these. I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. Found some JK Rubicon Rims w/ BF Goodrich MT for $700 is that a good deal?
They are a little scraped up, but nothing serious. Anyway from what I understand from reading other forums is that I do NOT need a lift for these too fit, just wheel spacers for clearing the calipers? Is this correct? and what size and brand spacer is the best?
Thank you guys!!

What size are the tires? 255/75/17? If they're that size and good shape then I'd say that's a good deal. But if they are that size you'll need a lift.

i got 5 Moabs with tires for $250. All 5 rims were mint and the tires were basically no good. But then again i only bought these for the rims... and its funny cause i was still able to turn around and sell the 5 tires for $60 and the 5th rim for another $60 :D

Search your local Craigslist, those JK guys are ALWAYS looking to unload those rims/tires for cheap.

$700 sounds a bit steep, especially if they are scraped up.

I just put this same set-up on my 2006 GC. You DO NOT need a lift. I used 1/4" spacers to clear the calipers. They don't rub, and the only time I've had an issue is if I hit a pothole. They are definitely loud though, but it doesn't bother me anymore.
