    So I drive a manual and I can tell that my shift points are definitely different, but still very driveable. Still lots of pep above 3k rpm so the weight isn’t very noticeable, just the gearing. They fit on the tailgate though the rear wiper does hit the 3rd brake light. Tailgate is deforest heavier to close.

    Noise wise I don’t think they are much louder, but still a slight increase. I haven’t had my doors on since I put them on. Definitely not as loud as a full mud terrain. On drive pavement, I don’t notice a difference. Haven’t had them out in the rain since we don’t seem to be getting much of that lately.

    Just got new shoes today!!

    35x12.50 17 Cooper Evolution MT on 17x8.5 +18mm XD 140 Recon Wheels. Will be swapping out the black bolts on the edge for zinc when they come in to give it a little pop.

    Has anybody had this setup on a stock 2019 JLUR? Mopar Jet Black 17”x8.5” 12mm offset. Putting 315 70/R17 BFG T/A KO2’s with no planned lift. Any issues? Rubbing? Backup camera?

    Correct me if I misstate, the stock Rubi wheels are 44.5mm offset, so going to a 12mm offset, you'll be pushing the wheel out, I suspect you should have enough clearance.

    I used this site for tire and wheel size comparison https://tiresize.com/wheel-offset-calculator/

    I think you are right. I used rimsntires.com (second picture). This is a Mopar wheel, so I assume it will work.
