will these Moab wheels fit?
will these fit on a 2006 WK?

I'm not sure how to figure out if I have an "early" 2006 or "late". All I've been able to figure out is that the "early" '06's can fit them without spacers

Where did you learn that? I am pretty sure you need spacers to run moabs on any year WK.

I've been reading on the "other site" that after "early 2006" the calipers were bigger and they won't fit without spacers...

I'm trying to find a solution that is relatively inexpensive that will fit without spacers, I don't want to risk the danger of spacers just to have bigger tires since this is my DD and I rarely go off road

I learned the hard way that spacers are required for MOABs on an 06 WK. But Im not sure what year they are. I think I have 3/8" of 5/16" spacers on the front and none on the back.

Invest in a pair of spidertrax spacers and you will be fine. The stigma of spacers comes from the crap you can buy on eBay. I solid pair of spidertrax won't give you any issues especially if you don't beat on them off road. I have used them for years and never had a problem. Only spacers I will ever buy. Just tighten them to spec and never let a cowboy with an compressor torque them and you are golden.

They will fit AFTER you get spacers. 1/4" spacers up front are all that is required if you plan on running the stock JK tires and those rims.

I went with 1.25" spacer because im rolling on 265's.

Hope this helps!

Well I can tell you one thing. My dad has an 08 Limited and we tried putting his rims on mine, and mine on his. His fit on mine but my rims were not big enough to clear his calipers...just food for thought...

I got the Moab's to fit with 5/16 spacer from the local parts shop.
