Count me in the “stock tire” group. But then again, my JLUR is still 100% factory stock as I almost never wheel with it. Bought it for the looks of the steel bumper and the tires more than anything plus the topless/doorless experience in the summer.I accidentally posted this thread in the marketplace because I did it from my phone w/out my reading glasses. I marked that as sold, and I am reposting here.
Hi All! Now that I've got my brand new JLU Rubicon, I am in the process of picking out lift, wheels, tires, etc. I"m not planning on doing any hard-core rock crawling in this. I will be taking it off-road on moderate trails, but nothing crazy. With that in mind, my plan is currently to go with a mild suspension lift 2 - 2.5". Currently leaning towards the 2" Dynatrac. I'd like to run 35's on that with my stock rubicon wheels, and use Spidertrax 1.75" spacers.
This isn't so much a budget thing as it is me not wanting to go too tall or deal with regearing. Plus, I love the factory Rubicon wheels. Do y'all see any issues with this plan?
I'm over here quietly contemplating 37x13.5R17.....
35x12.5 on the stock wheels is absolutely fine.
It's best to go to the tire manufacturers site and get the approved wheel width specs for the tire you're wanting. This will avoid tire warranty issues and potentially safety issues as well. AFAIK 7.5" wheel widths are the minimum approved widths for a 285. Also keep in mind some shops won't mount tires if they're outide that approved width range.I'm so confused. I see so many places on the interweb that advise against a tire width of 285 on a 7.5 inch rim, but isn't that what comes on a stock rubi?
Look great ...but I heard one can't powder coat aluminum wheels because the possibility of structural failure of the material from the heat cycle to make the coating stick. Maybe there are other methods? I wanted to do this to my sahara but held back.i think those look nice blacked out.
pretty dang shiny looking for powder coating, too!
Yup. That was what I was going to say too. Love the stock rubi look! and If i go bigger this is the wheel to get it done I think. Same look but a little wider....all boxes checked!Jeep didn't do it, but Quadratec did
Same here. Love the stock rims with 35's. No spacers, either. I bought another brand new set for only $300 off Hi LIft Jack company when they bought a Rubi and modified it for a show Jeep. So when these get beaten up, I'll swap them out for the new ones.I have a 2" Mopar lift on my 2020 Rubicon. I'm running the premium Rubi wheels with
BF Goodrich K02 35 x 12.5 x 17 tires and no issues. I love them! I have no intention of getting any other wheels. Discount Tire installed them for me and confirmed that my stock wheels were the minimum for that size tire.
