Also, will the rubicon rims rub after a lift and 33x12.5" tires? I've read that wheel spacers may be needed?

Why not do 33x 10.50, and forget the spacer?

From what I know, one is a 16" rim with 5x4.5 lug and the other 17" with 5x5.5 lug.

And no, you can't use a 33x12.5 on them, you would have to go with a metric equivalent.

I think you would need a spacer or get some after market rims.. Im no tj expert but with that large of a tire on a stock rim usually there isnt enough back spacing for the tire to clear at full lock. It won't rub very bad but take all that with a grain of salt.

kudo's to sam's club!! They patched a nail hole in one of my tires for free.


I think stock wheels with larger tires look pretty bad ***. I am still on the fence if I will go to 35's, but if I do they do look pretty cool on the moab rims. The only issue that I have heard is that you cannot air down as much due to the narrower rim.

Powr, you will most likely need spacers with the stock backspacing with 33" tires, get the ones I got they work wonders and are strong as all get out. And a 12.50 vs a 10.50 tire won't make much difference is the outside edge of the 33" tire that will rub it will just rub slightly less with a 12.50. But, you will have to work of metric with 16" rims!

Gregaf, not true on the not being able to air down as much with narrower rims, it is actually much less likely you will pop a bead with narrow rims versus wide rims. The force of the wider tire on the narrow rim forces the bead out to seal the lip especially in low pressure situations.

No claymores, just truth!

I saw something pretty gruesome on the way into work this morning. I was driving on the 95 and something ahead of moved into the middle of the left lane. As I passed, I saw it was a small cat, and it just huddled down in the middle of the left lane. Shortly after I passed it, a pickup truck came up the lane, and while he straddled the cat, I could see the thing get sucked off the ground and bounced around. Can't see how it could survive much of that.

Found out what the difference in the rims is. The 03-04 are the smooth rounded ones, the 05-06 have the step. The JK rubi rims are more flat toward the outside of the rim, with bigger bolt pattern.

I would guess after the 9th time he didn't have any lives left.

So by video game rules, as long as he got across before the tenth, he's fine. Wonder if he had any continues left? poor cat!
