What kinds of wheels can I run on my JK?

Of course, any stock wheel that comes with the JK will be able to be used. If you are looking through the junk-yard and you find some rims that you really like, make sure that they are a 5-bolt pattern on 5" diameter. Chevy 1/2-ton pick-up trucks in the 2wd variety use this bolt-pattern.

You will be able to fit some 15" rims and all 16" and bigger rims on your Jeep. The only problem that you might run into is the brake-caliper rubbing on the inside of the 15" rim, depending on off-set. If you find the rims you choose rub - a set of wheel-spacers can be installed to move the rim further from the caliper.

Check the tire-manufacturer's recommended rim-width prior to running the tires on the rims that you choose yourself.

Note: This chart will be updated as people report back on different lift / wheel / spacer combinations. If you try a combination that works that isn't listed here yet, please send me a PM with the details of the lift and I will update as soon as possible
