all TJ wheels are interchangable, rubi or not. the 07+ JKs will require adapters for the lug pattern

the aluminum wheel spacers will not make the wheel weaker. it puts the same amount of leverage on your unit bearings that a wheel with less backspacing does.

it might be cheaper to buy new rims anyway if you factor in the price of the wheel spacers.

Thank you very much, I've been looking at wheels for a little while now for my 1999 TJ. And was thinking about put 2009 Rubicon wheels on there. But I'm not to sure yet

those rims are 16" or 17". any reason you want to go that route instead of 15"?

A friend of mine has a 4 door 2009 Rubicon and would give me a good deal on the wheels. Its either those or the CRAGAR wheels

For whatever reason deals are not difficult to find on the the 2007 plus 17 inch rubi style wheels. I would pass on them and get the 16 inch direct fit rubis, or get some nice 15x8 rims af your choice, and have a huge selection of tires to choose from. I'd stay away from that deal he is offering you and the whole wheel spacer/17 inch rim..even if it is a ggod deal, I see them all the time for cheap. I would not buy them for your TJ.

the cragars weigh more than aluminum wheels. more stopping distance to get used to.
do i recommend the BFG Bald Terrains? i think you know the answer already.
