Bought a complete set of wheels and tries for 2013 JK Wrangler Rubicon and installed them in my XK

Tires are small which I will sell since I had to buy the complete set.

The wheels look nice

Great looking Jeep!

I want to do this so bad, on my black XK. I fear the wife wont appreciate the road noise of the M/T's however.

Do it. Ahmed's look really good, but I think especially with the Jeep green. I wonder what they'd look like on mine with the white.

What size spacers do you need with the rubicon rims?

I'm not sure if you need one .. but I don't think so as it has the same dimensions of the stock rim.

Many people have trouble with the calipers hitting the wheel.

It has been mentioned that worn brake pads may alleviate the issue.

Typically .25" spacers can be enough to clear it, or a little grinder action can do the job as well.

I bet it's a 1"-1.5" spacer, it looks to me like the wheels are quite a ways outside the fender.

According to his signature

"Spidertax 1.5" wheel spacer,"
I assumed that signature was pre-rubi. wheel install since he just installed them. I would like to know for sure since I'm looking for new wheels.

Yes I have the spidertrax spacers installed, I was just telling that most probably it will fit without the spacers. but one guy mentioned it may hit the break caliber.

What size tires? Theses are all over Craig's list with the BFG mt. 255/75/17 tires. Is this a good size with a 2.25 inch lift? Or should I wait for 265/70/17?
Thanks
