    Found a real nice set of tires and Rims off a 2018 Jeep Rubicon. Size 285/R70/17 I would like to put them on my 2012 Jeep JK Stock with No Lift. Will this work with no issues ?

    Thanks Tom C.159146557_3780367615362318_2019535007045592730_o.jpg

    Using my '16 as an example the OEM wheels should fit. The tires are considered 33s .....1.1" taller than my stock tires 265/70R17 and about 0.79 wider. If there is any rubbing use a 1.5" wheel spacer.

    paid cash for it.
    I went with 255/75/17 on my 2011 Sport that was running the stock 225/75/16 when I bought it. It kind of looked like a postal truck jeep. Now it looks normal. 255/75/17 will fit and look good, imho. Basically 32” but also narrow and don’t need spacers or non stock wheels. They’re a common size and easy to find with Oem jeep wheels. I paid $450 for mine with only 10k km on them. The Rubicon wheels are good and will work with a variety of tire sizes. It’s the tire size that will problematic - 285/70s are pretty wide for a stock suspension.
