It depends on your backspacing, but stock jk tires with approximately 2" spacers will probably be just about perfect with the edge of your flares.

Rumor has it the JK Moab have a 6" backpacking, so with a 1.25" adapter, that would put it at 4.75" backpacking. TJ Moabs are 5", so this means the JK ones will stick out a quarter inch more?

Sandplasma,

Just curious, what thickness of wheel spacer/adapters did you get to put the JK wheels on your TJ? 1.5" or 2"? I am getting some 17" JK Moab wheels with tires and was wondering. I was thinking the 1.5" are the way to go; but, was wondering what you went with. Any rubbing at full turn?

I never had a rubbing issue with 1.25" wheel adapters

Depends on which tire you go with. The street tire shown a couple of posts up will not rub a Rubicon flare on a small bump but will lightly drag on the control arms with a 1" adapter. If you move it out, it will hit the flare. If you run the Mud Pattern tires on the same rims, the tread is squared off and wider enough that it will hit the flares on small bumps. Pick your poison, I took the muds off and switched to the street tires because I spend a lot more time with the wheels mostly straight ahead than I do at full lock and I can stop the rubbing there simply by turning the steering wheel back slightly. Can't miss all the bumps on the road though.

Interesting old thread...

Just wondering out loud... are JK rims all that exciting to go to all the trouble of getting adaptor/spacers @ the extra cost just to fit them on a TJ?? To each their own I guess...

'05 LJR, 6sp, RC long arm w/MC 6" coils, 5.13 D44's w/chromo shafts, MetalCloak fenders/sliders/body armor, 37x12.50 MTR's, Warn 9.5, RockHard swing out w/full spare. <><

Take off price plus adaptor cost still comes out pretty cheap for a nice quality alloy wheel IMO.

Personally, If you have a jeep that you just like to drive around town. This is a good option. I got 5 JK wheels and tires for $500 + $100 used spidertrax adapters. And then sold my 5 31x10.5's with steel wheels for $250. Not bad for $350 wheel and tire package... granted not everyone will find deals like I did. But I would do it again for a daily driver 90% on road jeep.

4-500 for a set of 5 new JK take-offs is the going rate around here. At that price, you can almost throw the rims away with the tires when they wear out and go get another set.

The JK 17" Rubicon rims (pre 2013) don't look bad. The 18" are butt ugly. I use mine for winter rims on Wifey's Grand Cherokee.

It's already been covered, but here's my TJ when I got it 5 years ago with no lift & 1.25" adapters & JK wheels/tires. It didn't rub anywhere at any time, but that was before I started disconnecting the swaybar : )


Next thing you know...5 years later...you end up here : )
