2013 Wheels on a 2008??

I am looking at buying a set of wheels and tires from a 2013-2014 Wrangler Rubicon to put on my 2008 non Rubicon. First question will these tires fit with out any rubbing? And will the TPMS system still work??

you can take the tpms out of your 2008 and put them in the 2013 wheels

Replace your TPMS. The batteries are probably nearing the end of their life and also the aluminum body and steel nuts have corroded together. That's the issue with the old sensors...get the new rubber style.

Wheel will fit just fine, look them up in my build thread! Love these wheels.

Agreed with the above statements.

double check the backspacing on the rims/wheels to make sure you are not going to rub/scrub
