JK wheels on TJ- clearance issues?

I have a stock TJ Sport....bought a set of stock wheels from a 2013 Unlimited.
I ordered 1.5in adaptors for correct bolt pattern.
Will they still rub on the fender flares at stock ride height?

If they are the stock 17" rims and 255 70 17 tires, you won't have any problem. I did the same thing. I used Spidertrax adapters, fwiw.

We used adapters to mount my 32x17" rubicon wheels on a TJ. Fit fine with a 2.5 bb

Those wheels have 6" of backspacing. Adding Wheel Adapters/Spacers that are 1.5" gets you down to about 4.5" of backspacing. Depending on tire size, that may be enough, or you may have some rubbing at full lock. Let me know what other questions you have!
