From my experience running +25 on a 8.5" wide wheel with 37x12.5r17 tires a +30 will rub on the LCA's pretty hard at full lock. If you had a 35" x 11.00r 17 tire on a 8.5 +30 wheel it might not or you could probably get by (doing what I did) turning out the steering stops a little. I don't have a visualizer but 35x11.00r 17's on a 8.5 +30 should be flush.
Hear is mine with a wider tire 12.5 and +25 wheel....

Was that both with the Mopar and Synergy LCAs? No problem with fender clearance with the Mopar bump extensions?

Yes. I run a tall-ish Cooper STT Pro tire and when loaded with mud they will rub when stuffed but a dry tire, no issues.

18x9 +18 offset with 275/70/18. Pokes just enough to look “tough” but not enough to sling crap all over the Jeep. Last photo is with 1” spacer lift.

I currently have the Black Rhino Warlord in a -12 offset, didn't realize they would stick out as far as they do, the only other option for this rim is the +30, I absolutely love the Black Rhino Rims in the gunmetal as it perfect for the color of my Jeep. I live in NS Canada, so roads are crappy and backroad even crappier...lol, and we also have ugly winters, too much spitting up side of Jeep from the offset sticking out so far, although the -12 if aggressive and looks good, its not what I wanted
I have only seen -12 on Sport and Sahara models. The Rubicon axles are wider so -12 would stick out quite a bit on yours.

On the other hand, +30 sounds a bit high. Have you tried looking for another wheel in the color that you like?

Please post a picture of your Jeep so we can see what it looks like now.

You are dead wrong, it would stick out no more than it does on the Rubicon. True that the Rubicon have wider axles than Non-rubicons, but Rubicon fenders are also wider than non-Rubicons buy the same amount.

I suspect that we are talking about different things.

I am speaking about the difference between the outer edge of the wheel and the Jeep's body. If I am understanding you correctly, you are speaking about the difference between the outer edge of the wheel and the Jeep's fender.

Wheels with -12 offset are a good way to give a Sport or Sahara a wider, more aggressive stance.

I was hoping that the OP would have posted some pictures so I could see what they look like on a Rubicon. I would expect them to stick out more with the wider axles.

Well, if the Rubicon and non-Rubicon are fender less, then you are right saying that they would stick out more on the Rubicon since their axles are 1.5 “ wider or 3/4” per side. But if both vehicles have their fender on, they would stick out of the fenders equally since the Rubicon have wider fenders to compensate for their wider axles.

Thanks.

I guess the mud flaps will be necessary since they extend past the fenders.
