15" AR VNA69 Ansen Sprint Polished Wheels

Anyone running these? Any issues with fitting over the caliber of a 2014 JK?

high likely hood they wont fit.
3.75 is the minimum backspacing to keep them off the caliper usually

spacers mean more weight. you are defeating one of the purposes of a 15(weight reduction) by adding the spacer. on 35s i get 19 mpg interstate.

FYI
Got a response from a seller of these rims on Amazon
"Hello. We spoke to American Racing and according to them it should work. This wheel has adequate caliper clearance, proper hub bore and the lug pattern. We always recommend test fitting each wheel prior to mounting a tire just to insure 100% proper fitment."

Well I hope they do.
I'm just going by what I read in the post By 4lift
Largest tire on stock JK? Here's your answer!

On Aftermarket Wheels
"As I mentioned initially, the stock wheels have a backspacing of 6.25”. This is too deep of a backspace to allow proper clearance for a decently wide tire. The general consensus is that the “magic number” for backspacing for the JK is 4.5” or less. It does not mean you can't run a wheel with 4.6”+. But 4.5” and under is the safest bet.

Many 15” wheels have less (sometimes a lot less) than 4.5”. That's so the wheel clears the brake calipers. Most 15” wheels come with 3.75” of backspacing (MB72, MB TKO, etc). There are a few that come with more (such as the Black Rock 909 – 4”) and some that come with less (such as the Level 8 Tracker – 3.32”). Just remember, the lower the backspace number, the further out the wheel will sit from the Jeep body. One of the most common wheel/tire combos on this site is the 15x8 MB 72 wheel with 33x12.5x15 Duratrac tires. Dozens of people run this setup without a single issue on the street. However, just like most of the other 33” combinations, you can get some fender contact when offroad.

Also, be aware that, while many 15" alloy wheels will fit over the Wrangler's brake calipers, most 15" steel wheels will not. "
