I wanted to order Mopar Part# 82219010AB JK Wheels and put them on my JL. Dealership that I inquired through states that JK Wheels will absolutely NOT fit on a JL - something about JL's no longer being 5x5. Is this true?

If so, what bolt pattern or specs do I need to look out for when ordering aftermarket wheels? Fuel is telling me wheels should fit on my JL no problem. I just want to make sure I order the right thing.

I'm 99.9% sure the wheels are the same. Hell, aren't the "upgraded" Rubicon wheels just JK Hard Rock wheels?

Hell.....the Sport S rims are the last JK Rubicon wheels, but painted a different color. Literally the same wheel.

Those look similar to JK Sahara or special edition wheels although I do think those are aftermarket.

Holy cow i did not even realize how similar they were. But if you notice the positioning of the bolts are different. Still it's crazy how the color of the rim can make such a difference, good catch!

Stay away from that dealer until they get some training.... The offset on JK wheels is not the exact spec the JL will use, but they bolt up 100%. The item that changed are the lug nuts, they are now M14 instead of 1/2".
I couldn't agree more with this considering i work for a dealer now in sales but spent years on the service side. It seemed nobody (to include wheel companies) could give any insight pertaining to the difference. To elaborate more on what you were saying about studs/lugs and wheel fitment, Yes the JK wheels with go on there as they are both 5x5 lug pattern. No they WILL NOT bolt up safely. The lug bore on the JL wheel is considerably larger, not allowing the lug nut to seat fully into the wheel as it should. There is also less back spacing on the JL wheel.

Just throwing this out there, I have JK Recon Rubicon wheels and tires on my JL currently (Jeep dealer had them on there already) I checked how the lug nuts mate in with the contact surface with the wheel. Looked good. 20180313_185859.jpg
