Has anyone noticed a difference in power when upgrading their Sport S from the standard wheels/tires to Rubicon takeoffs? In my experience with other vehicles, upgrading to a larger tire does make a difference.
I went from the Sport S stock tires to 35s, and there was a notable difference. It's manageable for daily driving but I'll eventually re-gear to get some power back. It probably won't be *as* bad with the 33s from the Rubicon, though.
Also worth noting mine's a manual, I've heard others say the automatics don't suffer as much from bigger tires.
Automatic 2.0 Sahara here. Went to 315/70/17 and no discernible loss in power. I doubt you’d notice much difference with stock Rubi tires unless you have a manual transmission, then you might notice a little.
