2012 sport/ with rubicon wheels

Can I fit a set of stock 2012 rubicon wheels under my 2012 sport with no issues? can I ever go a little taller without a lift? Photos would be appreciated.
Thanks

The 2012 Sport with aluminum wheels are the exact same wheel as the Rubicon, just painted a different color. Obviously you would still need to upgrade to the BFG M/T for the same look.

Well yes, it is a Rubicon.
I do believe the Moabs and 32" BF's can be optioned on a sport.

The Rubi and Sahara do not have a lift from the factory. Gas shocks and maybe stiffer springs. The the height difference is in the tire/wheel combo.

Putting them on a sport the ride hight should be the same.

33 tires will fit on a stock Jk but aftermarket wheels with less backspacing will be needed.

How much more lift will the rubi tires and wheels give to my sport, it currently has the 16" steelies? Thanks for you help

U have 29's correct ?

Your looking at 32's, so your jeep will sit 1 1/2 inch higher from the ground.

My jeep does have a higher spring rates then some, so it sits a bit higher than others I've compared to.
