The Wifes New Rubicon Wheels and BFG MTs

Hello everyone,

So I am relatively new here and some of you may not know the whole story but in a nutshell I srt'd the 06 GC. SRT Wheels, Suspension etc... Then the wife saw a lifted one and said she liked that better.... So here I am.


Her jeep is still srt'd out right now but parts are on order.

Daystar 2" Lift
Bilstein HDs
1/4" Wheel Spacers

Here are her new 09 Rubicon 17s with BFG MT's 255/75/17. These wheels had the machined face but she wanted it "sparkly".... So I went out and bought some metallic silver wheel paint and clear.

Dont scare me like that.... The 16" Rubicons are 5x4.5. The 17"s are 5x5.

Any pics of your jeep with the 255/75's and the daystar lift on it?

LOL seriously though I want to see a pic of your jeep. Did you do anything else to fit the 255/75s? I saw one guy on here ran a 1/4" spacer to make it work without trimming. Thats what I plan on doing but the more knowledge I have the better.

OK Cool. The spacers should be here by monday. I think that should be enough to clear without rubbing.

Any pics of your vehicle are appreciated. The wife wants to see what her car is going to look like.
