tires- help, can I use these?

I am new to this forum...sorry If this is not the appropriate place to ask this; or if it is just a dumb question...
I have a 2015 unlimited wrangler

I have a friend that has a rubicon with stock 35 wrangler mtr kevlar with blackout rims that he is willing to give me and put on my jeep.

Would they fit without a lift? Would it be as easy as just swapping them out?


thank you for the understanding and any advice you can give!

No 35's will not fit on your stock 2015 that is if there is no lift on yours- actually let me correct my self they will fit but you will probably run into rubbing issues

I think you need to figure out what tires and wheels your friend has. MTR-K tire never came stock on the Jeep, so they aren't stock. Stock on the rubi was a special made BFG mud terrain that is about 32". You should be able to run a 33" tire on aftermarket wheels with different backspacing with minimal rubbing.

Is your buddies jeep a JK? The TJ rubi's cam with a wrangler mtr (not kevlar). TJ wheels will not work on the JK though.

Flat flares and possibly bump stops.

I know with the front if they are stock rims then you will need to purchase wheel spacers, there is a problem with the rear with a pinch seam near the wheel that sticks out that gouges tires during articulation and you may want to invest in some type of flat fenders if you plan on doing some heavy off roading

Ok... He said they were added on by the dealer before he got them. Said he has a 2014 jk. This is just about appearance for me. I don't really do any off-roading. At the same time I don't want to harm anything or hurt the warranty... But almost too good to pass up...

Still need to know what size they are, if you want an accurate answer.

Would that make it work and not rub the Stock flares? Would it have any negative effect on the warranty? I'll look it it up. I really appreciate the help.
