My guess, knowing that they’re 37 KM3s on 7.5 inch rims is less 5.22. That’s based on these looking less “tucked in” than Trail Recons on the Mopar rims with 5.22” BS.

Im hoping that they are less than, or equal to, 5.22” BS. Negate need to buy new wheels.

Just trying to start some conversation that isn’t MSRP related.

I have those tires and stock wheels. With 1.5 inch spacers, that's about how far mine stick out.

Thank you for the reply.

Given the stock Rubicon whee backspacing is a hair under 6.2”, that means you are currently sitting at about 4.6-4.7” of backspacing with the spacers installed. Hopefully the 392 stock rims are sitting at 4.6-4.7” BS as well. .

The production wheels have the same backspace as the regular rubicon wheels.

Got a source for this info my friend?
No. Shooting from the hip 100%.

Looking at the blue preproduction model, you can see the huge difference in offset between the concept on 37s and the 33s on the blue guy. They look exactly like the normal rubi to me.

So I've been putting a lot of thought into this as I don't want to buy rims first thing (yes I do, financially no). But I'm pretty sure I'm going to do as others has stated and throw some 37 ko2's on. I really don't want to buy spacers, so I've been staring at all pictures of these wheels and even though it doesn't look like there's a huge difference from the Rubicon rims, I am almost positive there is a slight difference. I started Looking into this more and found the Mojave's rims have a slightly lower offset of 37mm, which has the same lift as ours. Hopefully our rims will have an even lower offset.
Pictures of the Mojave wheel specs are in the link Mojave backspacing | Jeep Gladiator Forum - JeepGladiatorForum.com

My guess is 17x8.5 +12mm (or 5.22" backspacing), just like the Mopar wheels.

Are we sure the axles are the same width as the Rubicon?
Jeep has listed the 392 wheels at 17x7.5. We do not know offset yet.

The current Mopar beadlocks have 4.4” BS. I do believe the silver non-beadlock Mopar wheels are 5.22 BS.

Is it safe to assume the lug pattern will be the same as standard? I bought the damn wheels pre-drilled months ago when I thought I was ordering a diesel JLU.

Not the exact backspacing I'd wish for, but I sure hope your right.

I’d say, safe to assume the same lug pattern/interchangeable with all other JLs.
