WK vs. JK Backspacing

Is both the WK and the Rubicon Backspacing on all factory wheels 6.25"?

i.e. no spacers required if my current tires fit?

I have a 2008 WK and can get some Rubicon 10th anniversary black wheels at a fair price which would match my black WK.

Is the OEM back spacing on these the same?

Both wheels are 17 x 7.5" ... which I think is why the Rubicon folks are selling them cheep as they can't run 38's on them.

Factory WK BS is 6.25" and JK BS is 6"... You're going to need a minimum of a 1/4" wheel spacers to fit the anniversary rims
