2006 wrangler tire clearance question

I have an 06 Wrangler that I am wanting to put 17 inch JK wheels on..My question is if there will be enough clearance for the tires with the stock height...And I was also wondering if anyone out there has put the wheel adapters on to make their pre 2006 have a bolt pattern of 5x5...and if so could I see a picture, I'd just like to see how far the wheels stick out, thanks for looking and jeep on!!

Drewbaby,

I'm assuming you will be running the stock JK tires along with the wheels and they should fit with no problem. Spidertrax makes wheel adapters that are 1.25" thick. So basically it will stick out an extra 1.25" than it would normally.

When installing the wheel spacers, be sure to torque them down just like you would with a wheel. They also should be checked for tightness regularly.

If you have any questions, hit me up with a PM anytime!

Don't the JK wheels have extra high backspacing? So even with the spacers/adaptors wheels not going to be much different than stock TJ wheels.

Biffgnar,
Yea, compared to stock TJ wheels, JK wheels have more back spacing. So with the adapters, he will be right around where a stock TJ wheel would be. Drewbaby may notice a little more sticking out than stock but nothing huge.
