yup itll work i went with cooper STT pros 255/75 tho instead of 285/70 on mine. im beyond happy with it and like it. i got all 5 wheels brand new off a guy who had them changed out at the dealer when his jeep showed up. I paid 400 for all 5. Had 0 miles on them. i think the rubicon wheels look great and like them over 97% of wheel options out there.
I gotta tell ya. This is one of the nicest looking Jeeps I've seen. Love those tires.

Just the base. Only options I got were A/C and LSD. I guess MT you could say is an option anymore lol had to order it. Couldn't find a manual anywhere. I've done some small things here and there. Nothing major tho. Appreciate the comment! Have a great day! @chcg12
I looked everywhere around Idaho for your exact Jeep, and it wasn't to be found. I found a few MT Sports, but none with the LSD option.

Sorry for the thread drift. I guess this has nothing to do with Rubicon wheels does it?

@DennyCrane I appreciate the comments very much. I'm proud of it. I feel you on not being able to find it. I had to order this one. It's getting harder and harder to find MT anymore in a lot of vehicles. Here in Indiana there was only 1 with these at the time I ordered this with these options but it was 4.5 hours away. Didn't have the LSD and it was also in black. In my small town I live in I'm the only one with a 2 door JL. Myself personally I'm not a fan of the 4 doors. Don't get me wrong there are some damn good looking 4 doors out there just not my taste. I love 2 doors. Only one with white also around here. I almost went with red but stayed white. I had 3 red TJ in the past and wanted to be different.

Very nice, Dr. Daniel!

I went with Gladiator Rubicon wheels, but I didn't like the 285/70 MT's that came on them, so I swapped them out for 255/75 BFG AT KO2's. Very happy with the look and performance of these.

Really like the smaller tire size compared to the standard Rubi size. Would love to see what stock all-season tires off a Sport or Sport S look like on Rubicon rims.

Your Wrangler looks great. The garage is not bad either!

Howdy - found this great thread and it answered my main questions about the spare fitting and the rubbing risk on a stock Sport for Rubi sized tires. Question though - I really like the look of my steelies. Any drawback to putting 285/70/17 on my existing wheels? I'm guessing weight is a potential concern for the spare? Has anyone done it?
