I’ve searched the threads and couldn’t find anything. What’s the offset and backspacing of the Rubicon wheel? TIA

Trying to figure out which setup would be closest to oem.

17x9
5.47 BS
-12 offset

or

17x9
5.0 BS
0 offset

Yup +44 so that guide that Jeep Noob shared will help you to determine where you want to go with rims. For what it's worth, someone was running an 18x9 with a +20 offset, as I recall just fine on a Rubicon due to the wider axles. I chose to do a 17x9 with -12 offset. Could have probably done the +1 offset I was also considering just fine too, of course, as the difference between -12, and +1 is marginal. As for aftermarket wheels close to OEM, I'm not sure. Keep in mind if you're going for a particular look, like dished, etc, the offset will control how good that wheel looks or not. Another comment, if you want to keep your OEM wheels and just go with bigger tires, I've spoken to a few people who've squished 35x12's and even 37x12s on those OEM Rubicon wheels. You'll be out of spec of the tire but there are pros to doing something like this on airing down. Such as those beads will be "pinched" much better on that 7.5" rim, so things to consider.

Good luck with your search.
