Factory Rubicon JK wheels on 35x12.5x17 tires?

Does anyone know if the factory Rubicon JK wheels will fit on 35x12.5x17 tires? The part I am not sure on is the width. I think the factory wheels are 7.5" wide and am not sure if they will work on 12.5" wide tires? If you have any pics that would be nice!

Yeah, but you are gonna need wheel spacers.

Spidertrax and teraflex both make good spacers, you can find them on quadratec.com. Make sure you read all the info on the forum about spacers, a lot of people don't think they're safe, and they are illegal in some states.

I personally don't know if they are safe or not, so I played it safe and just bought new rims. Didn't want to put my family or any other motorist at risk.

Yea I rather not go with spacers anyway, I probably will wait to get tire and wheel package.

Spacers can be safe as long as you maintain them properly, i believe either kate or IG did a good writeup on maintaining spacers. Id personally go with aftermarket wheels, but its your choice.
