2008 Rubicon rims to replace 2006 Commander stock rims

I found a set of 2008 Rubicon rims I'd really like to put on my 06 Commander. I read that the TPMS sensors are interchangeable. It's not clear to me if I need a spacer and I'm unsure if I can user my existing tires on these rims. I believe my 06 Commander stock tires are 245/65r17.

If anyone knows I'd sure appreciate any advice on the subject.

Thank you,
FastEddie

You would need to run 1/4 inch wheel spacers to clear those wheels up front. Not positive about the TPMS sensors but I'm pretty sure the rubicon ones won't work on the Commander. I could be wrong though.

I'm pretty sure if you're using your stock rubber on the Rubicon wheels you will have no issues. Those 2 rims have the same bolt pattern, offset and bore. If you're using the Rubicon rubber, then there will most likely be rubbing.
