new wheels on the WJ
Last weekend I finally got the new wheels on the Jeep. These are 2013 JK Rubicon wheels with 265/65/17 Hankook ATm's. The lift is a 2" budget boost with Bilstein 5100 shocks.

Honestly, they look better on the WJ then they do on the JK. Well done!

Thank you. Honestly, these are not really the wheels I was looking to buy, but these came up on craigslist for a price I couldn't refuse.

Very nice! I have been on the hunt of a long time for a great deal on some JK wheels.. I agree with Lucas J the Moab edition JK wheels look better on a WJ then the JK they came on.
You only have a 2"bb with 265? I am assuming there was some trimming that went along with that?
I have a 2"bb, but I am running 245/70/17.. and could not imagine that anything bigger would fit without eating my fog light for breakfast.

They look real sharp against that dark blue and match with your grille insert and lower fascia.

265/65/17's are the same height as 245/70/17's but are 20mm wider. If you are still running your stock wheels, you may have some clearance issues on the inside with shocks and other suspension components. Also, the 265's do make the spare tire cover stick up a bit. The stock WJ wheels have close to 51mm offset and the JK wheels are 44mm so that is where the extra room comes from for the wider tires.

Looks great! I would rock those if the price was right = cheap

Interesting. Looks like I will be buying some 265's when I finally hunt down a set of Graphite JK wheels!
