Rubicon doesn’t help me that much since my axles aren’t as wide. I think I am in the 0 to +10 range. Seems to put me about 1.5-2” outside stock. Front tires have about 3/4 inside fender now, so may be about what I need to stay legal here
You want a 0 offset at most if you want to stay close to inside fenders. I run a 9.5” and -18 offset.

yeah, they are sticklers here at inspection time. Maybe 1.5” outside fender I can pull off. If I calculate right, 0 on a 9” wheel is 5.25” backspacing. Pushes my wheel out .75”. Then another 1” or so for the 11.2” tire and I am probably 1-1.5” outside fender.

I've got a 21 JLUR.
Planning to get the Fuel Covert D716 17x9. They come in +1 or -12 offset.
It will be wrapped with 35 KO2.
Really do not want it to stick out too much. Maybe an inch or so. Would -12 do the job? Anyone has one of these they can share pics of?

from what I understand the rubicon axles are 1.5” wider than sport and Sahara.

A +1 will be 43 mm or roughly 1.7” further out than stock. -12 would be 56 mm further out, or over 2”.

both instances in Delaware are illegal. +18 is as far as I can go and that’s about 1.25” outside the Sahara fender.

Hmm, might not want more than 2". Was looking from something close to 1-1.5".

Do they actually pull people over for the tires sticking out in Delaware? NJ has the same law but most of the Jeeps and off-road rigs all run wider tires that are past the fenders. Hell I even see some people with no fenders. So far I haven’t gotten pulled over(as I knock on wood) and I run a -18 on a sport.

Hi all, I'm looking to get 17x9 0 offset rims installed on a 21' Rubicon. I'm having a hard time finding pics of that specific setup on stock suspension. If anyone can help link me with that setup, it would be greatly appreciated. I'm scouring the internet and forums as we speak, tough luck so far.

Check out Custom Offsets site. They helped me with my setup when I got my JL in 2018..
