Lift necessary to fit 2013 Rubi wheels on 99 TJ?

I searched for this and didn't find anything. I know I need adapters to fit JK wheels on a TJ, but does anyone know if a lift would be needed to fit 2013 Rubi wheels (with the 255/75-17 BFG Mud Terrains) on a 99 TJ Sport? Thanks!

I doubt it especially since your gonna be running wheel spacers/adapters. I think those are about 31s and 31s will fit on a stock tj

the stock JK tire is 32" tall. something along the lines of a 1.25 inch BL should work pretty well as a cheap solution(also gives you room to upgrade latter in the armor department), something a long the lines of a 2" suspension lift would also work.

that said, ive seen a few TJs running JK take offs on stock supension around here, however these are TJs of the mall crawler veriaty. if going offroad, those 32"s are gona touch things.
