I dont know if i can answer that for the US wheels, down here there is no difference. As far as i know the machined face ones are the Rubicons, and the painted ones are the normal wrangler ones.

I can vouch. I am running MOABS off a 2012 wrangler take offs. They fit on my 2008 JGC with .25" spacers and no lift. The only reason the .25" spacers are needed is for the rim coming into contact with the caliper bracket. You can shave this down with a file, 1/8", and you will be good to go! I have tried stuffing the tires and they don't rub, 100% clearance, no scraping.

Hope this helps someone out there, I know it's been answered 100 times before.

Thank's for the reply! I'm an over-thinker and after noticing the difference was hoping I didn't end up with a heavier set or something. So I figured I'd ask. I appreciate your help. I think once I have an opportunity to weigh the wheel without a tire I'll post up what the weight comes out as and maybe there will be something to compare against. Here's hoping they shave some lbs!!

I have a 2007 Grand cherokee with no lift and the rubi wheels on with a 1/4" in spacer to clear the brake caliper. They are running a 255/75/17 with no issues that I can see. It clears the uca bolt but do you guys think I will have rubbing issues? There is about 3/4" inch to inch of room between the tire and the bottom of the uca bolt. I was thinking of getting the spidertraxx 1.25" spacers.


***Edit
I orders the spidertrax 1.5" spacers I noticed some rubbing near the UCA arm bolt and for piece of mind lol.

The JK MOAB's I got from a 2012 were 44.45 Offset, and they didn't rub on my 2010 WK caliper bracket.

They will fit with a 2" lift, they might rub the caliper they did on my 05 so I went to advance auto a got a set of 1/4" spacers for the front for $20. If you do end up needing spacers then I would suggest getting some bolt on ones. Anywhere between 1"-1.5" should do. I personally have 1.25" spacer and I'm looking into switching to 1" spacers because my 275s just barely touch the fender at full stuff and the fender lip rolled in the back. I think there is a company named bora that makes quality spacers like spidertraxx which I would suggest for anything smaller than 1.25" Sent from my Jailbroken iPhone using JeepForum

Any thought been given to these Quadratec Moabs?
http://www.quadratec.com/products/92615_211X_PG.htm
17x8.5" Size with 4.7" Backspacing

If you have the 17" Jeep Brand JK Moab wheels:
Machined Cast-Aluminum - Size 17 x 7.5
Backspacing .......... 6.25"
Bolt Pattern .......... 5 x 5

If I'm thinking correctly, these Quadratec wheels would stick out 2.55" more? 1.55" due to backspacing and 1" due to rim width?

Like Valpacer said ... you'll need 1/4" spacer "with the same tires" for the JK or Moab wheels.

There are (2) Moab wheels a 17" and the 20". They are the same offset as the JK wheels which I run on mine. I put the black 1.5" spacers, but the 0.25" will work fine. 10th anniversary Rubi's.
