You probably won't see many TJs with JK wheels, they are a different lug pattern.

That doesn't mean you can't run them on a TJ. You can get some adapters from Spidertrax (link)

they are more than you would think, you see they make these things called adapters and what they do is change the bolt pattern to that of the wheel. therefore a TJ can run JK wheels

If you are running 285s or above with the 16" moabs you are most likely running wheel spacers anyway to prevent rubbing. A guy at my work has 17" moabs on a TJ, but hes running 31" road tires with it...

I'm looking to see what it looks like with a 285/70/17 KM2 or other decent sized MT.

That the size I plan on going when I wear out my 31s. There is another member with a white TJ and 17" Moabs on it. Looks good. if I find it, I'll post it for you.

my cousin had the wheel adapter/spacers on his with 1.25 bl, 3" springs and stuff an old set of 37" BFG MT's under it.... don't have any pics though. Looked pretty good.

'05 X, hard top, 6" up and 315/75 KM2's, Rokmen corners and 8.8 w/ gears and e-locker waitin' to go in....

Well that's ****ing shocking, good thing we have you around here. There's also this thing called reading comprehension, I didn't say it is impossible, I said due to the different lug pattern you probably won't see many with this combo. I actually have a guy that I wheel with that went the opposite way with it, he sold his factory JK moabs and runs conversion spacers with 15s from a TJ. I have personally never seen anyone put the JK wheels on their TJ, and judging by all of the photos pouring in on this thread, it appears that I may have been correct in my assumption that there are not alot of people running this combo.

I use them for my snow tires b/c they're narrower and allow for 235/70/17 Blizzaks (on-road, narrower snow tires outperform wider snow tires, as they create more pressure per square inch)
