I tend to think it might be a good look, but I'm not for sure. Anyone seen the new style Rubicon wheels on an XK before?

How does the offset compare to the factory wheel? Need more or less spacers?

Are you sure those are new rubicon wheels? I've seen those wheels on many non Rubicons at the dealer and if you look at the rubicon to the left in the pic it has the rubicon Moab wheels on it.

Could the one on the left be a '12 model? I have seen at least 2 versions of the wheel pictured. One in a gunmetal like above and another in black. The 10th Anniversary Rubicon has them in black.

I was thinking if I could find a takeoff set of these it might be a good way to save some money, but now I'm reconsidering. Those BFG MT's look like they would be pretty poor on the highway.

I have been thinking about these 2013 rubi wheels and tires as wheel with a 2inch lift and pinch weld mod.

I have the same concern about the tires as well, highway driving, wet road condition driving, noise ect.

I have google searched and have not found any pics yet, I would assume this board would be the place we will first see them.

I currently have the dark argent factory Mountain Ed wheels with stock tires and am also considering the 2013 Rubicon wheels and tires. I think it comes down to the color of the Jeep. My wife's is white and with the chrome parts on the Limited I now regret getting such a dark wheel. I think the 2013s with the polished lips would break it up some.

Commander with new Rubicon Wheels and tires.

Here you go.
I just finished this today. I had to swap the tpms due to wrong frequency.
They fit tight and I am considering relocating the fuel lines.
I am running a RR 2.25
The ride is good at 75 mph but they are noisy. I actually like that part.

Relocating the fuel lines?? The fuel lines are no where near the tires/wheels.

Btw those wheels look sick on your Commander!

I think they look great!

You running spacers?

Also if you dont mind how much did you pick them up for?

What exact size are the tires?

Did you do the pinch weld mod?
