2013 jk rims and tires on a jeep tj

I have recently picked up 2013 wrangler rubicon take off tires and got some spidertrax tire adapters to put them on. i was having a hard time finding pictures, so hard in fact that i think i might be the first to put these on a tj... haha right. Now some people dont like these tires, but i think they are great looking. give me your guys opinions, keep in mind i have a 2' lift on the way.

Crazy man...maybe it'll look better once you get some lift going. Hard to get past them being so stuffed in there...lift her up and repost, I bet it'll look good

I haven't been a very big fan of the new Rubicon wheels, but I have to admit, those look pretty darn good! Miss my TJ!

Looks good sir, I like the moabs but seen these first. I'm getting 2" procomp springs from a place that I have store credit, so it's only going to cost me 20$ and I'm wanting metal cloaks and 4" flares which I just love

What did you have to buy to make them fit? I have a buddy that has 2012 takeoffs but I think they are 17". Will they still fit under a 2" BB Rubicon Express kit??? Yours looks great

You'll need the proper adapters and with a 2" lift of any type you should be accomplishing a stance similar to his

You'll need 5x5.5?? adapters I believe. Some spidertrax spacer/adapters would be ideal because you'll most likely need to increase the backspacing for the wider tires (lower numerical number). And wheel size doesn't matter for fitment, it's the tires that are wrapped on the wheels that you have to worry about. Unless of course you're running 28's or something ridiculous and idiotic like that.

Here is my TJ with the stock JK wheels and tires (17" wheels on 32" tires) I actually just took these wheels off and did a lift so I have all 5 wheels, all 5 tires (almost new) and all 5 adapters available for sale if anyone is interested. I am located in Laguna Hills, CA.
