So no rubbing issues? I'm planning on doing the same thing tomorrow.Just first impressions on a couple of mile drive home:
No discernible difference in ride quality
No discernible difference in noise at 45-50 mph (haven't been faster than that)
No discernible difference in handling.
All in all, very pleased with the results.
Been running the stock Rubi wheel and tyre combo for 6 months now and put on a few thousand miles. No rubbing issues at all. Haven't done any serious off-roading but light trails and high ways no issues at all. No contact at all even on full lock. I actually think the ride quality is slightly better than on the stock 18" wheels with the A/T tyres.So no rubbing issues? I'm planning on doing the same thing tomorrow.
I did it. Today I installed rubicon take offs on my Sahara. The install was easy. Test drive was good. No rubbing, mpg stayed around 23 Thank you to everyone on this forum that have posted pics,comments etc that helped me make my decision to do this. Sharing a few pics of before and after.
I think they're trying to up sell you. I suggest going into the allmoparparts subforum. There's a thread dedicated to getting parts questions answered by a helpful guy named Benny. See what he says.The dealership told me that once they are trained to a specific vehicle he did not think they could be trained to a different vehicle.
I used the sensors that were in the rubicon wheels/tires.I'm pretty certain that tpms sensors are the same across all trims.
Thanks for the first hand experience!I used the sensors that were in the rubicon wheels/tires.
i drove it out of the driveway and the sensors were acknowledged by the Jeep and I adjusted the tire pressure to 35 psi. No problems so far.
