Very nice! Do you get any rubbing in daily driving without a lift? How about over landing?
Normal driving I don't get running unless I am turning over a bump too fast, then the back tires rub a bit. I wouldn't suggest running 37's permanently with no lift, I am only doing it because I'm too impatient to wait for my lift lol.

Those method wheels look so good! I’m planning on doing the MR305 or MR306.

Do you know the width and offset of yours?

8.5 inches wide with a 0 offset. The difference between the original 7.5 inch Rubi wheel and this Method is that your tires will stick out almost 2 inches beyond the fender. The tire is also about an inch wider in the same size. Great look and I have no regrets.

I agree. Looks fantastic, really solid and clean. Well done.

Daammnnnnn this looks sick! Thanks for posting! Giives me a great idea of what my planned setup will look like.
My 2-door white Rubi should arrive next week. I'm planning the Mopar 2" lift, 37" SST Pros on the matte black Method MR306 Mesh (really similar to the Grid). Well done, sir!

Thanks! I have no regrets with tire size, drives exactly like it did when I drove it off the lot stock. You won’t be sorry, yours will look awesome, cant wait to see pics when you get it.

Did you debate at all between 12.5 vs 13.5? I'm still going back and forth. Yours does look incredibly badass. Mine being a 2-door, don't know if will be TOO much (if there is such a thing? haha).

It’s funny you ask, I asked for the 12.5 but somehow the guy ordered 13.5. I actually like the look so I figured I would keep them. (And I didn’t want to wait any longer haha) When these wear out I might go with the 12.5, not sure but I have time. These do feel really good on the road, I’m not sure what the other posters were referring to with “squirreling”.

I don’t think you’ll be sorry with either. The badass Jeep below has a more narrow tire to give you an idea (38” Milestar Patagonias)

Ha! Thats great. I like your Jeep more than the one you posted. I think you won out. Hopefully the guy only charged you for the 12.5s since the 13.5s run a little more. I'm leaning toward the 13.5s after seeing yours. Do you happen to know the offset on your method wheels? Any issues with the 13.5s rubbing at full lock? Thanks for all the info, really appreciated!

I think your right, it was a happy accident. The wheels are 0 offset. There are no rubbing issues, but I’m not sure if the 3.5 lift helps with that or not.
The turning radius is pretty surprising.
