Newb Question

I have a 97 TJ and like to put on the 2010 Rubicon Wheels. (5 x 4.5) does anyone know if the back spacing will work?

Welcome Aboard! Be advised, the 2010 Rubicon wheels have 5 X 5 spacing, not 5 X 4.5.

Yes, what he said. The backspace will be ok, but the bolt pattern is not correct for your TJ..

Thanks everyone. The back spacing is what most concerned me. I know I can get 5x5 to 5x4.5 adapters. Would anyone know if a 2012 Rubicon frount bumper would fit on my TJ?
