35s on Stock Wheels?

I have a 2006 Jeep Rubicon w/ 5.5 long arm Teraflex, Ive been looking at wheels until my eyes are crossed and cant find any wheel that all the soccer moms with JKs are running. Can I run 35s on my stock 16Rims?

I thought picking a lift was hard! I think finding the right wheel is much harder, I think Im about to give up on the wheels if 35’s will fit on my stock rims. Does anyone have any advice?????

No reason they won't work, but you will have to add spacers so that you don't rub when turning or articulating. Actually just ordered a set of them myself

Do you think there would be a lot of sidewall sway on the interstate?

Dont think the stock wheels will allow you enough backspace so as carolina said, you'll need to run spacers or put some washers on your steering stops so you dont rub when turning.

Im just tired of finding a set of wheels I may want to run, then going down the road you see at least 5 Jks with soccer moms running the wheels you want. Then its back to the drawing board.

A nice black alloy would look great on your rig...not many mall crawler JK's with black wheels.

If I went with new wheels Id go with black, but the 4wheel parts here in Nashville has been selling the crap out of black wheels, so everywhere you turn all you see is black Fuel & XD wheels. Thats why I thought if I just stuck with my stock wheels and ran 35’s it would set me apart, but at the same time I was curious how much side wall roll Id get with a 16’’wheel.

If i was buying new wheels i'd go with Procomps since i agree with you, everyone runs the XD's and Fuels.

Nice offroad style wheel...heres mine on 35's with wheel similar to the procomp 7069

The top wheel is a good looking ProComp. I wish I could find a pic of a stock wheel on a 35” Its gonna be hard to talk my wife into new wheels right now hahaha Especially after I just spent some money on the lift. Thanks for the pics btw.

I got a really comfy couch for this reason lol...no joke.
I figure if the gf gets mad, i'll still sleep great lol.

At least the procomps are on sale at the moment...you could talk her into in using the sale route and also explain that you'll recoup some of the cash by selling your current set. Explain that you'll ruin the turning radius by installing washers on the steering stops and if you picked up spacers to run the stock set then those will set you back another 150ish so its like buying new wheels anyway...plus it'll change the look. Its like her getting a new pair of heels to match her outfit. She may not "need' them but they're definitely worth it.

You'll be in line before you know it...

I've been running 315/75-16's (35's) on my stock Rubicon wheels for 9 years. No issues with handling to report. You will need at least 1.25 inch wheel spacers, I run 1.5 inch spacers. And you will want to put a couple of washers behind the nuts on your steering stop bolts to keep from rubbing the control arms at full lock. I used the Rubicon wheels because I really like the way they look and they work just fine with some spacers.



Here's an old shot of my wife flexing the Jeep out in the back yard with the 35's on it.

I did in fact have some trouble balancing, it took a lot of weights as can be seen in the second photo. But I think it has more to do with the inexperienced technician and the big tires more than the wheels.

just an FYI good wheel spacers will cost as much if not more then some rims. 10 years ago i payed 55 bucks each for my rims... had no issue with them, wheel spacers were going to cost nearly 150 each.

Does that frameless top flap around when driving highway speeds?

Sorry to change subject
