they definitely make it look better. i am a huge fan of those 15 inch 5 star looking aluminum ones that came as an option on ours and the cherokees. i love those rims and i was going to put them on the jeep i currently have, like i have on every other jeep i have ever owned but these moabs look so dang good.


I don't feel like working on anything at this time so i sold my yj.

If they truly have 5" backspace you're going to be rubbing your leaf springs with any tire wider than 10.5 (not a problem with TJ coils) yes you can adjust the stops but your turning radius is going to be big. I'm running 11.5 on 3.75 backspace and rubbed pretty bad till I adjusted.

My 265/75R16 BFG A/T's on 16" TJ Moab's did rub the leaf spring barely at full lock when they had more tread on them. My old 30x9.50R15 BFG M/T's rubbed also on factory 5-stars. I will be adjusting the stops when I get my next set of BFG's on the YJ.
