Rubicon Wheels

I found someone selling Rubicon wheels off their '10 Rubicon, the tires have less than 500 miles on them. What's the going rate for a set of 5 wheels and tires?

Also, I'd really like to get a set of the wheels off the Mountain Edition as I prefer the darker wheels. I tried to search through the forums to see how often they show up for sale but I couldn't find any in my searches. Any one seen them on the forum?

TIA

Do you mean the wheels or the tires? If its just for the wheels then no more $200 but if its for the tires then anywhere between $500-750 tops. I see the wheels and tires together for around $600 frequently.

I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for mountain wheels. How much is he asking for the Rubicon wheels and tires?

Yes, its the wheels and tires.

His ad says "make an offer" and was thinking of offering $500. I'll then need to sell the ones of my wife's '10 Sahara.

That's more of an opinion though. If he likes those wheels then what else is out there doesn't necessarily matter. I actually just bought those same rims and am in the process of getting them powdercoated. I paid 30 a rim, without tires.

I would offer him a bit less than what you are willing to pay for them then go from there. Price is going to mildly fluctuate based on the demand in your area.

I'm in VA so I think any deal we figure out will be impacted by shipping.

I got the mountain wheels and tires new from the dealer for $900. The Rubicon wheels would have been the same price.

Wow...they offered to sell them to be at the MSRP. You wouldn't happen to be in the VA area?

No, sorry, in Atlanta area. I negotiated the tire and wheel upgrade as part of the purchase of the jeep. Seemed like a fair price--perhaps wholesale. Still, you can always do better used if you find a motivated seller...

Unless the OP wants to mount larger tires than stock in the future; in that case, aftermarket wheels are a "better" option since the consumer can select a more appropriate backspacing and not have to rely on spacers (considered dangerous by many and illegal by a growing number of states).

A thing that is certainly worth considering.
None of the stock wheels are worth a poop in regard to mounting larger tires. (opinion, mine...)

As of right now I have a "No non OEM wheels" direction from the wife. I sort of have a reputation for messing with our cars which is OK if its mine but she is tiring of them on her car. The Jeep is the shared "fun" vehicle but I am trying not to push things at first. I am just swapping out the Sahara 18" with 17" of the Rubicon as I like them better, just a personal preference.

Wish I would have thought of it during the purchase as I would have negotiated it as well but it was sort of a spur of the moment purchase.

Thanks again everyone!

i did the same thing. i have a sahara and swapped them for rubicon wheels and tires.

i found mine locally in east TN, rubicon wheels, tires, and rock rails for $800 total, and only had a couple thousand miles on them from what i could tell (he said less than 1k but i seriously doubt it)

ended up selling my sahara wheels and tires for $400 and my steps for $100

so i grossed $300 for my conversion.

ok so i'm looking to upgrade wheels and tires for my 08 2dr jk x. Ive got around a $1100 price range. I'm looking at the wrangler duratrac tires or a nice all terrain as its my dd. The 265/75/16 are pretty cheap and i think theyll be a bigger improvement. Id like to buy some rubicon wheels but am not sure if theyll fit.. I'm seeing a lot of 17 sizes. I'm assuming they wont fit on that size duratrac.

What shud I be looking for as I don't want to buy a set of wheels and then have them not fit. Its either slightly used rubi wheels or some cheaper new soft 8's.

Any advice on a combo that would work?

if you want those tires you ahve to have a 16in wheel, hence the 16 at the end of the size. If you want to run rubicon wheels you need a tire with a 17 at the end.

Yes, you need 16" wheels to fit a 16" tire.

I see new takeoff 17s going for $500, and new takeoff 18s going for $750.

The asking prices are usually $700-$1250.

I found a set of new takeoff 17s with TPMS for $650.

It always seems like the good deals come a day late, I already ordered my 17x8.5 and 175-70-17s when I found a new set of 17s for $400. Not exactly the look I want, but $400 for a set of new takeoffs sure beats my 16s.

16x8 Moabs have a different bolt pattern than your JK does, you'll need adapters to make them fit. The easiest choice for you would be to find tires in the size that fit a 17" JK wheel. Duratracs are available in a 17" tire, iirc.
