Rubicon / Sahara Wheels

I took my 2008 Limited and a set of 17x7.5 2007 Wrangler wheels to Discount Tire with the excitement of a kid at Christmas. I left in utter disapointment after being told these wheels will not clear the calipers. I have seen these wheels on Commanders. Can anyone render assistance, please? Thank you in advance.

Q: What is the smallest size wheel that will fit on my Jeep Commander?

A: The smallest size wheel that will fit on the Jeep Commander is the stock size, which is a 17" Wheel. The 16" wheels won't clear the front brake calipers. Some 17" wheels will require at least a custom 1" wheel spacer to clear the brake caliper due to the design. The 17" JK Rubicon wheel is one of them.

The Rubis will fit with the spacer, You can get them at any off-road shop and several on-line vendors.
