I don't know who's jeep, but....

It looks like it is on a 2.5 inch lift, stock rims wrapped in Goodyear Duratrac 285's with wheel spacers.

I have an mountain edition and I love the way they look. So when I lifted it I kept the stock wheels and just used spacers to clear the 35s.

How can they be 12.5" wide tires on a stock rim that is 7.5" wide? I have never heard of tires that wide on rims that narrow.

A lot of peeps on here (me included) run 12.5" wide tires on 8" wide wheels. The stock wheels will work fine.

This is what holy_crap sent me on the details:

TeraFlex 2.5" Coil lift on top of the TeraFlex spacer leveling kit
The tires are 35x12.50x17 Fierce Attitude M/T
The shocks are Fox IFP 2.0 Racing Shox.
Spidertrax 1.5" spacers

All of which I ordered as his Jeep is impressive looking!

The wheels are "carbon".

They are the stock wheels on the 12 rubicon. (maybe others)

The 12 wheels were a little darker than 11's but not as dark as the COD black ones

I agree they look good. I was trying to decide if I wanted to spend the money on new wheels or just get bigger tires for the stock ones. Both jeeps on this thread look good. I think I will just get the wheels painted black and put 35s on them once I get the lift done this summer.

A 0.5" is a lawsuit when it comes to tires.

Any place mounting tires on a rim that is 0.5" smaller then the tire manufacture's minimum rim size is not only voiding the tire's warrentee, but assuming all liability should there be an accident involving tire failure.

As someone mentioned previously, those are off a Mountain edition. I have a 2012 Rubi and the wheels that came with it are called Mineral Gray, and hardly as dark as those.



I wouldn't mind getting a hold of some of them. Think they look sharp, especially on a white jeep. I plasti-dipped mine black, but the novelty of an all black wheel is wearing off for me. I see these Carbon wheels or some ATX186 Slots in my near future.

Can stock Rubicon shocks be used with the 2.5" TeraFlex coil lift?

The shop I go to always has something to say about my 12.5 on a 8"
Their manufacture --which I think is Cooper--recommends a 10"
He says my wheels are too small for my tire
