Don't mean to hijack the thread but my question is related since quite a few are recommending rubi take-offs:

Is there a place that shows wheels offered by model and year?

Thanks,

John

Quite easy. 2007-2012 had three tire/wheel choices.

The sport/x featured 16 steel wheels known to hold caked on mud and had small cheap street tires. This is still used on current base models.
The Sahara featured 18" wheels on Bridgestone 32" tires. These tires say a/t but to me look like a street tire.
Rubicon featured 17" wheels on 32" mtr's.
Mountain Edition and a couple of other editions (mostly sticker packages) featured rubicon tires and wheels, sometimes painted graphite or black depending on exact package.
There was a rugged brown Sahara that had the eight spoke wheels. I forgot what they called that particular edition. Definitely not an offroad wheel.

2013-2014 has Easter eggs all over the jeep in places like the windshield and even the wheels.
The sport base model comes with same crappy tires and wheels as 2007-2012
Sahara has a strange looking 18" wheel pictured in this thread.
Rubicon now has a 17" wheel that has styling similar to a 1980's camaro in a bad way, with most of the wheel painted painted dark gray or black.


So, look at pictures of 2007-2012 JK and look at what they currently show on Jeep's website.

Thanks, good info.

Tell me, what are the 17", 32" wheels/tires that are part of the Sport 'S' package? Same as the Rubi?

No, the Rubi's all get Mud and Terrain tires and the rims described above. The S rims are a 5 spoke pattern.
