Rubicon wheels same as Subaru?

Saw this in the parking lot and couldn't help but notice the resemblance.

The real problem here is those ugly wheels should have never been on a Jeep.

I understand the need to freshen things up from time to time, but even the backspacing doe'nt look right on the new Rubi wheels!

It is odd how they both came out for the same model year. Maybe they are from the same supplier. What are the chances that there are two unrelated designers out there with the same poor taste?

Regardless, we should all go out of our way to pay too much for take offs of these rims and some wheel adapters for fear that our Jeeps may look old and outdated. That is the Jeeper way...

Actually, I don't think they look too bad on the Jeep....but they're absolutely awful looking on the Subaru!
