New wheels on my doorstep today!

Five of these showed up today along with a set of black Gorilla lug nuts and five black embossed Savegre center caps. (I think the bright yellow center caps will clash with Dozer, but I'll try both) I'm getting these installed tomorrow morning

Very nice, what tires are you wrapping them with?

I was actually considering doing my wheel/tire upgrade in steps. First I planned to get these same rims and use them on the stock Rubicon Tires (if that's possible), and then upgrade to 35's after I run the tread off the stock tires. Any thought on that? Will these rims work as replacements for the stock 17" rims that come on the Rubicon?

yes, the big difference between the stock rubi wheels and these are backspacing. but the money it's going to cost you to remove your tpms and tires... to remount and balance on another wheel set.... you might be better off just waiting to do it all one time instead of two times...

my 0.02. i'm right there with you. just finished my BDS 4" SA lift.. but still have the stock mountain wheels and tires. trying so very hard to be patient...

They are being wrapped in my 33" KM2's that I just had installed a week or so ago
I assume the 255's would fit just fine, but if it was me, I just get the 35's now and sell the 32's.

My cousin works at a tire shop and he would only charge me $20/wheel or nothing if they are really slow and had no work. The other thing with going straight to 35s is that it would also require a lift. I have the stages in my mind based on my budget. First rims, then lift, then tires. I just wasn't sure if there was a significant width difference between the rims that prevented me from using them with the stock tires.
