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.

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.

Except my paint is extremely faded and wearing down to the primer and mine only has a 2.5" lift.
