Do you think its a good idea to put sahara tires on my Rubicon? I plan to use it as my daily driver, and probably will NOT go offroading

I dont think it would look that good With the high fenders from the rubicon but if you need sahara take offs im will well mines with just 1k miles on them. Im upgrading to 35s.

Why did you get a Rubicon? Seems like you should have considered a Sahara.

I live in NYC, and love the look of the rubicon....Are sahara tires much smaller than the stock rubicons?

The stock Rubicon tires are size 285/70r17 and the BFGoodrich specs show that they have a 32.8” overall diameter.

The stock Sahara tires are 255/70r18 and is close to 32” in diameter. This tire is also 10.2 inches wide as compared to 11.5” for the stock Rubi tires.

So you are looking at an inch wider and an inch taller for the Rubicon. Also the Rubicon Wrangler fender flares are two inches higher on the Rubicon. The most recognizable trait of this feature is that the Rubicon front fender flares encroach on the hood latches whereas those of the Sport and Sahara models do not. This allows for greater suspension travel off-road as well as room for bigger tires should you want to increase tires size without having to greatly increase lift.

I have the same rubi. Curious how did you blackout your Rubicon decal? Did you apply a new one? Also did you replace the trail rated and jeep badges or did you just paint them?

I bought black Rubicon decal set off eBay. Bought black trail rated badge of eBay. And bought new Jeep nameplate off internet and painted black bc it doesn’t come black for this year.

Took a good hour to pull off Jeep nameplates. and clean off the double side tape with goof off. I used painters tape around the Jeep name first so that I could line up the new nameplate in same spot.
