What year Rubicon? I have the ones from the TJ series with the tires that came stock with them. I don't have a pic but my profile should show them.

They are not all the same either, they made them for 3 years, and that was it. This style was the last year. 2006 "stepsides". The above rims have the smooth taper. There was another painted version as well, they are fairly rare. All are 16" rims with 5" backspacing.

Original paint and rust free body and minor surface rust on the frame. I got it for free from my dad 2 years ago. Just needed a brake line and tune up from sitting.

On a plus note, idk about other owners of rubi moabs, but most say it makes the old girl look 10 years younger
