Thanks everyone for the compliments. I appreciate it. I can't wait to get wheeling.

JK Moab wheels on TJ ! ! !

Ok just got these mounted up today!

2.25" BB

1.5" spacer/adapters

2 washers to estop some lower control arm rubbing. (1 washer almost did the trick)

JK Moab wheels with 255/75 R17 (Stock Rubi) tires

Spare just fits. I have to mount it with the door open and when closed it kind of sits on the rear bumper a bit.


Paid $650 for the set(5). 1200mi on 4 of them and 1 unused spare.
Wheel spacers from MCmotersports $35 each free shipping ($175)
Sold the 31x10.50 R15 AT's on stock Gamblers for $300
Total upgrade cost: 650 + 175 - 300 = $525

I had spacers, so you would need to buy lugnuts
Oreilly's had a deal for a 4pack (1/2 x 20 bulge seat Part Number: 711-206) for $3.49
If you buy individuals they are $1.99 each

I was pricing (5) 32x11.50 R15 and that was going to run me between $800 and $900. I think this was a Deal.

BTW...how much pressure are you running in your JK Rubicon BFG's?

JK specs say 37 PSI...
I was running 28 PSI on my old 32/11.5/15 BFG MTs...with good results...
My TJ door jam specs 33 PSI for stock 30/9.5/15...
I have settled on 33 PSI for my JK Rubicon BFGs, but only have about 500 mi since my change to the JKs

Any opinions?

I'm running 32 for now, but I've only had them on for a couple weeks. The ride seems a bit harsh I may bring that down soon.

Great thread...

Great thread guys, as I am in this same predicament right now...
Buddy is offering his 2007 Moabs with 255/75R/17's to be me, for FREE!
I've been putting them off, but after reading this, I think I may do it. I have a 2000 TJ now. No mods. Will I need to but a BB or BL on the Jeep to make these fit? Read this thread and the opinions are all over the place...
Thoughts? (I have a BL and a 2" BB in the garage that I bought used. Just trying to do this as cheap as possible. Got to get the spacers/adapters too. Quadratec ($99 per pair) or somewhere else?

Appreciate the help!
