I know some have been interested in upgrading to the XR / 392 Rubicon wheels so I am posting my upgrade. I have installed a set while keeping my stock 285/70R17 tires. The rims go from 7.5 to 8.0 inch wide and 6 to 5 inch backspace. This gives my track a 1.5 inch bump out each side, 2 inch considering the bead lock ring.

looks great.. I am not a fan of the new 2024 rubicon stock wheel too, the prev gen looked nice. The XR wheel makes the rig look sooo much better

Thanks, I like the wider stance and if I decide to go with 35’s these wheels will work perfectly like stock XR or 392 Rubicons.

How well did the spare fit? Is it against the rubber tailgate bushings? Also, how much did it affect your MPG’s?

I have not driven enough to check mileage difference but as far as bump stops on tailgate they are about an inch too short now. So, I ordered a longer bump stop kit from Quadratec which can be cut to fit properly.

Looks great! The new black/polished XR version is really growing on me, but I can’t really justify swapping wheels for the 5th time in 3.5 years. Not that it will stop me, I just won’t be able to justify 🤪.

On yer 4’th spare relocation too? I’m only on my 3’rd, back ordered wheels expected in 2-6 weeks with a 1 offset, adjustable likely needed to tuck them back 🙄

HA! Not that many . . . yet 😎, but I did swap over to the Teraflex mount which means I do have plenty of adjustability available for whatever comes next 👍.

The Teraflex adjustable will be used to tuck the spare back eliminating camera/ sensor issues. I need a garage sale for replaced, some unused Jeep parts . :facepalm:
