As many people of mentioned, shops will not mount the 35x12.5 on the factory rubicon wheel. For those that are running 35s on the factory rubicon wheel, have you had any issues? There’s obviously a reason they refuse to mount them so I’m wondering if anyone has actually experienced any problems... thanks!
I recently switched from the stock tires on my JLUR to the 315/70-17 ko2's. I provided the tires but just needed the local shop to mount them on my stock rims. When setting the appointment, they asked if I had gotten 35's or 315's because they can't mount a 35 tire on the stock wheel. Said its because the 35" ko2 is a load range E and is too rigid for a 7.5" wide wheel. The 315 is fine because its a load range C.

I have 37 x 12.50 on stock rubicon rims, nearly 8,000 miles. No problems at all. 4 Wheel Parts mounted no problem. Drives better than stock on the Freeway ( front lower adjustable control arms, Yeti sway bar, Fox Steering Stabilizer). Also it has been on the Rubicon Trail and the Pismo Dunes. Should be no problem finding a shop to mount them. PM me if I can assist , provide assistance

Are you running 37s with no lift?

Rubicon here running 35's with stock wheels no problem. Ran them without the lift for awhile very tight, but I like the look of the 2.5" lift so added that for looks not fitment. No wheel spacers.
Hey I’m getting some 35 12.50 put on today. No lift yet but have a 2.5” on order (also for looks). Did you have any issues when turning or anything. I don’t have wheel spacers.

Thank you to everyone for this forum. It is helping me pick what 35's to put on my 2018 JL-R, since I'm pretty much a noob on the specs on this stuff. I'm doing this in reverse order after getting some trail damage and already lifted it last week (and did bumpers and rock guards first), with tires being next. It's a daily driver/weekend warrior AND has to fit in parking garages, so 35" seems to be the right size and I have to deal with snow half the year.

The red 2 door Rubicon in the pictures is mine (the highly recommended manufacturer is local and the kit just came out) with the net 2" (3" stated, but Rubicons are 1" higher to start) Iron Rock Offroad foundation lift with Bilstein 5125 shocks. Didn't have to change any steering components, but may want to add an adjustable track bar and address sway bar links later: https://www.ironrockoffroad.com/product/jl-3-foundation-series-lift-kit.html

None at all just went bigger because I could and wanted to get away from load range E of the KO2s easier to air down offroad. The wheel spacers were not needed for the 37" with the RC spacer lift just for looks.

That’s so impressive. These new JLUR just keep impressing me. My 35s with stock suspension are great. At full turn left and right no rubbing.

You rub at full lock with no lift or spacers with 35s on stock wheels?
