I just picked up a '99 WJ last weekend and plan on putting the tires/wheels off my '09 JK Rubi Unlim on it. Hence a few questions for you since you have the same tires. The stock Rubi wheels are 17x7.5 with 6.25" of backspace and I have some 1.25" spacers which I plan to use that I barely got away with not needing when I lifted the Rubi which...now the questions.
Approx how much have you had to trim and how much rubbing do you still have? It looks like you wheel a little harder than I will, so if it's working for you then I'm pretty sure it'll work for me. I should end up about .25" closer in than you as well which should cut down on the bumper trimming just slightly.
Other than a little clunk that you're trying to figure out, any other issues you've had? Happy with the road manners too?
I'm sure I'll come up with more questions too....
