From what I’ve seen pretty much every rubicon owner put 35/12.5/17 or 315/70/17 on stock 7.5 wheels without any issues, some people on here also run 37s

I'm no expert on tires and wheels but I was told that the stock Moab wheels are 17x7.5 and with 35's I need at least 17x8.5 or bigger so I just bought 35's and new wheels that are 8.5. I'm sure someone else will be able to validate if this is accurate and if so, why...
I've got 315/70/17 KO2's on stock 17x7.5 rims and it works fine. No issues after 15,000 miles on them. They are wearing evenly and perfectly.

Some have ran 35’s on 17x7.5 but most need spacers to avoid any running.

Moving on up .....
If you go to the Tire manufacturers website or on Tirerack, it will show you for the Tires what the range of wheel size is that is supported. The Stock 17 x 7.5s are fine with 35s.

Pretty sure that’s not correct.
I took these off my MOAB yesterday so having a hard time figuring out the part numbers but it looks like others are selling these parts as Rubicon takeoffs.

Can anyone fill me in on what accessories come with the Moab edition? I just picked up the '19 moab and I have to get the dealer to order the all weather mats and the tool kit. Is there anything else I need to see if I'm missing? Right now all I have is the freedom panel bags and owners manual. My jk willys came with a few other accessories like grab handles and stuff.
They make a winch guard for the front Steel Bumper. I added in Door Sill Treads, and changed out my whip antennae for a stubby one. I'm not sure what specific "MOAB" trim or accessories there are other than what you might find on MOPAR website.

That is correct. You can use the stock wheel if you add a spacer, which is possible but not recommended for best performance. I was originally going to put 35” on the stock Moab wheel, but opted for new rims after learning more. So, it’s possible, but not ideal.

I have same question. I’m looking to sell old suspension kit after putting in 2” mopar lift. Mechanic at shop that did my lift told me the stock Moab suspension is the same one as the rubicon, but I have not verified. Let me know if you figure this out and how much you think resale value is. I’ll keep researching as well.

Saw these on another thread to answer my own question, figured I'll share, hope the owner doesn't mind!
