I know I have seen a few of you running Ridge Grappler 285/75/r17 on 17x9 (-6 to -12 mm) and have some slight scrubbing, but nothing too bad from my understanding.

I was thinking of going with the same tires, but wanted the black rhino armory wheels which only come in 17x9.5 (-18mm). It's either those or the ProComp 69s I've seen thrown around a lot on here. I don't want to completely screw my turning radius with major scrubbing, but honestly this is my first time dealing with offset/back spacing etc and I don't fully understand

I know someone that has the Armory with the - 18 on a 2017 JK Rubicon and they fit and look great. I really like the way the lip is almost flush and hardly any lip on the wheel. This is how i want it like this here.Will it fit like this with hardly no lip on the JL anyone know ? But it is on a 35 12 50 17. I would be putting it on a 37 12 50 or 37 13.50 17 and i want it to look and fit like this. Do yall think it would look like this here on the lip ?

-18 is only going to work if you stuck to a skinny tire (10 inches or so). JL axles are wider and the stock rims at +44 only sit .5 inches in the fenders.

-18 with any width to the tire will poke ALOT.

JL rims will be designed with (+8, +10, +12) offsets to compensate for the wider axle.

It also doesn't stick way out like i thought it might. I guess when i get my JL i will have the discount tire manager thats a friend of mine order1 wheel and see how it fits.if like this i will go with it. I would maybe like to try a 37 13.50 17 instead of the 12.50 like this other photo here has. It has the 37 13.50 17. The small pic has the 37 13.50 17 i thin that really looks good. bUt the other pics have the - 18 on it so it looks like it will fit
