TJ owners: Will my JK wheels and tires fit a TJ.

A co worker of mine has a TJ and was interested in buying my stock JK wheels and tires. They are 17'' Moab's with 32'' Goodyear SR-A tires with 26,000 miles. Will these fit without a lift? Also, he has the base 3.0something gears and a manual tranny. Will he drive ok with this setup? He doesn't do serious offroading. He just wants some bigger tires and wheels.

Im also not sure what to sell these for... Any ideas on a fair price for all 5? They are in great condition with no rock rash.

32" tires will not fit effectively under a Stock TJ without a lift. The other thing you have to be aware of is the Bolt pattern on the JK. I believe the stock JK wheels have a 5x5 bolt pattern, while the TJ has 5x4.5

In short No they won't fit.

In short No they won't fit unless you get wheel adapters and a small lift.
fixed it for ya.

Yes they will fit, but only with the adapters you do not need a lift to fit the 32" tires. I have a set of 17" JK Rubicons with 32" Mud Terrains and there is no rubbing of the fenders with stock suspension. I have been off roading with them and everything was fine. The only is, is that it rubs when I turn extremley sharp. But it's not bad. I love the way that they look and I am sure that your freind will to. I bought the Spidertrax adapters from Quadratec. They were $200 for the set, but they are better than the cheapies on ebay. Also he will need one for the rear, which I just bought the cheep one. Good luck. Trust me it works.

As for pricing. I bought mine from Craigslist, Less than 100 miles on them brand new for $500 complete. I think because he is your friend and they have 26k I would say $500 would be a good price.

Ideally you should probably stick a 1" body or at least a 2" budget boost on for clearance. $.02

they dont rub because you dont disconnect your sway bar which means you probably are not wheeling anything decent (not trying to be a #$%%). yes they will rub severly unless you keep the sway bar attached or have no uptravel.

Michguy, Yes, but if you read his post, stock will do just fine.

Necrobump! Any idea's on mounting the 5th tire on the spare tire carrier? I know there are adapters, but will these put the tire way out there behind the Jeep? Are there replacement stock style carriers out there as well?

You could drill new holes in the stock tire carrier, but then the tire/wheel combo might be too close to the body.

The 17" JK Moab wheels have 6.25" backspacing where most stock TJ wheels have 5.5" backspacing.

get 1 more spacer/adapter like this. I just lift up on my tire when i shut the door, the tire will sit on the bumper.

I want to put JK stock wheels on my 2003 rubicon. Has about 8inches under it and currently 37x14.50 tires. I want to go to an 18in JK rim and 37x12.50 tire. Figured I'd buy the spidertrax adapters, but I want to pull my tires inside the wheel wells. Does the adapter make the tire stick out further? and I suppose I need to buy two sets (one set for the front two and back two), but what about my spare tire? Thanks for the help guys.
