Stock Rubicon JK rims & tires on my TJ

I'm getting my son's rims and tires off his Rubicon. What depth of adapter do I need?

Yes, they are different, the TJ is 5X4.5 and the JK is 5X5.0 The tire size is also 32" diameter. The back spacing for the TJ vs the JK would determine the spacer depth.

You will need a 5x5 to 5x4.5 adapter. Other than that you should be good. I dont think JK wheels have more than 5" backspacing, which is what Tjs are stock. So they should fit.

Jk rubi wheels are 17" wheels, are 7.5" wide, and have 6.5" of backspacing. A spidertrax 1.25" spacer will still end up giving you more backspacing than a stock tj wheel.

I run the jk wheels on my tj, but I swapped jk axles in too. The wheels are a pain in the *** now. I can't imagine them on a stock tj.

Your probably going to either need a body lift or a suspension lift of some kind to fit 32s, 31s are the largest you can fit stock with out rubbing.

I am running a BDS 3" kit and a set of wheel adaptors from A-DAPT-IT USA. The wheel adaptors are 1.30" thick.

Sorry bro, Im a busy boy. the wheels have a buttload of backspacing. Running jk wheels with no spacers gets my tire all up into my swayloc arm. I would imagine the same would happen with the stock swaybar. I really don't know how it is done with a tj width axle. I've got the extra width of my jk axles and I'm still getting into everything. I am currently in the market for 2" spacers. That will make things a little more manageable. Good luck.

The JK Wheels I measured had a backspacing of 5 and 7/8ths. Add a 1.25" adaptor and you get 4 and 5/8ths backspace.. no problem running them with the stock 255/75/17s.

I'm running a 12.50 wide tire, which is partly where my issues stem from. The other part is the fact that I've got some crazy aggressive tires, and the side lugs like to grab things, hence the Swayloc comment above.

Mine fit just barely. I have maybe 2 inches clearance at full lock.

How long did you have to wait to receive your adapters?
