I tried searching for a more thorough thread relating to 15 inch wheels (for JK's on this site) but couldn't find one so let's get this one going again. I'd love to see some more pics with wheel info included.
UPDATE: I initially thought my 15x8 Unique 297 (Soft 8 style) wheels fit but when I checked them a month later I found it was rubbing on the caliper in several places on the front. It took a 1/4" spacer to fix the issue.
'09 X Unlimited, 4WD, auto, half-doors, soft-top
RC 2.5" Series II BB, JKS Quick Discos, JKS adjustable front track bar
15x8 Unique 297 (Soft 8), Goodyear MTR/Kevlar 35x12.50R15
5.13 gears, ARB front locker, Currie front shafts
Bushwacker flat flares, Rubicon rails with steps added
I just installed MB Chaos 15x9 wheels with 3.75" back spacing. No clearance issues in my JK X w/ D30 front axle.
Tires are BFG MT KM2 35x12.5
THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.
I just talked to a 4Wheelparts customer service associate, and he informed me that any pro comp wheel with a part number ending in
"73" will fit the JK. I failed to ask if they fit the D-44 front end. I will find out soon, as I just ordered a set of the 15x8 "D" windows with 3.75" backspacing (part# PCW52-5873) 4wheelparts.com has them in stock, and free shipping!!!
My 15" MB72's w/3.75 BS clears the rears just fine, and will clear the fronts just fine SO LONG AS THE WEIGHTS ARE NOT DOUBLE STACKED. I have them under some 35" goodyear mt/r-k's and it rides like it's on pillows.
I strongly suggest inner lip hammer on weights with this setup though to avoid any issues.
Planned: Stubby bumper, rear carrier, ACE fenders and rails.
