Ok, I read a bunch of the posts here and wonder if anyone is running these wheels? Looking at the Black Rock Viper 900 wheels with a 3.75" backspacing. Wrap them in some Cepik Mud Country 33x12.5.
By reading the posts here I should be good for 95% of the things I want to do until I can get the lift I stalled, about a year away.

I've just read through all 29 pages of this thread (whew) and to your point, there is almost no information for the Rubi10A (I'm pretty sure the first page is not applicable to 10A). I have the Rubi10A with max-tow suspension and stock 265/70/17 tire. After adding my winch I am considering the Teraflex level kit. just to level up front to back. I like the stock 17" wheels and I don't believe in lifting just for appearances. Therefore I'll first fit tires to the stock Rubi10A clearance (whatever that is). I calculate my tires on a spreadsheet I've used for years to give me equivalent sizes. But at the end of the day I'm still missing the key bit of info like you - what is the new/different clearance of the 2013 JKU Rubi 10A with max tow?
This will be a key bit of information in 2014 for the Rubicon X with 24j package as well - perhaps we can update the initial page of the thread?
How can I help provide info?

That's what I'm trying to ask, what size tire is the rubicon?
Or what's a good looking tire that will fit on the OEM rim

I have a Stock 2014 Rubicon X and I just saw yesterday where the drivers side tire is eating the fender liner at the bottom front of the wheel well ?
What do you guys make of that?

I'm new here, so sorry if this has been asked before.
I just got a 2011 Jeep Wrangler 2D sport, and I want to get better tires.
Right now, I have 255/75R 17, and I want the same tire, or something that looks like them.
Here is the photo that I am going off of.

Question help about a tire and rim upgrade to my 2010 JK Sport.
Hi, I have a bone stock 2010 jeep wrangler sport. Its a 3.8l 6speed manual transmission. The stock rims are 16" 5lug by 5" space between lugs. I bought a set of five Rubicon rims that are 17" 5lug by 5" space. The new rims are from a 2011 rubicon. I also have a friend selling me a set of 305 70 17 tires. My question is simple, with this rim/tire swap I made; if I'm not driving off road anytime soon can I swap these wheels and tires from a 17" rubicon to my sport with no road problems? If I have to do a lift will a 2" lift work? Or would spacers be better or bumper stops? Please help me understand how to make this as painless as possible. I'm willing to trim a little off my fender flares. Thanks, all help needed soon!

To follow-up from my above ‘wishful thinking’ post (#857) and after reading even more posts on the forum (to the point of a brain freeze) do the below options make any sense with regard to changing out the stock KM’s on a 2014 2-door rubi:
1) Go with a slightly smaller diameter tire (similar to the 10A stock setup): Duratrac LT265R70/17
2) Replace the KMs with the same size Silent Armors (keep the stk wheels; no lift/wheel changes): GYSA P255R75/17
3) Replace the KMs with slightly larger Silent Armors (keep the stk wheels; no lift/wheel changes): GYSA LT275R70/17
4) Replace the KMs with 285R70/17s (requires new wheels or spacers (?) and maybe a 2”lift or level kit): Duratrac’s
Any Pros/Cons or out-to lunch comments would be helpful (especially if you’re running any of the above set-ups).

will they rub?
i have a new 2 door 2014 Sahara on the way. I have new 17x9 BirdDog wheels and 33" LT285/70R17 Goodyear Silent Armor tires to be swapped for the stock wheels/tires. NO LIFT yet. NO SPACERS. Will they rub??? Thanks.

I'd like to put a set of 285R70/17 Duratracs on a 2014 2-door Rubicon.
After reading through a number of threads it seems post 2013 Wranglers are able to accommodate these on stock rims with no spacers. Did something change in 2013 & does anyone have experience with this set-up (no lift/leveling, no spacers & stock rims)?

So i am in need of making a decision. I have a 2014 JKUR and I am putting 35 inch tires on next week. I have a purchase order set up for 35x17 km2s with 17 inch xd hoss rims. The cost is $2800
I was surfing craigslist and found some 35x16 km2s for $1000 for 5 of them. i was thinking about purchasing those tires and then just buying rims to fit them. i was looking at level 8 zx 16x8.5 5-127 -6mtb. Total of about $700 for 5 of them. So this route would save me around $1000 and i like both rims so i am good either way.
my question is will these rims fit a JKUR if i can make this happen?
what would you choose if this was your ride?

|Rude Robert||oh, thx the stock tire is way smaller then what is on there now, that okay, i didnt want to lift it until after is paid for...do u think i need to change or have my speedo reset?|
|10-30-2013 06:15 AM|
This is only a 29.56 inch tire
|10-30-2013 05:09 AM|
|Rude Robert||I ordered 265 65 16 duratrac from 4wheel they are c rated. They told me that I would not have any issues with rubbing when I get quick disconnects. Is this true. I didnt want to go over 32 inch high but they said that it will be like 32.5 is this also true. I was going to go with good year authority but walmart wouldnt put them on in the same size as mentioned above. I am lost on the tire sized why cant the tire makers just put the size on the tire lol|

I have a 2010 4dr JK with a leveling kit and 1.25" wheel spacers.
Anyone know if 285 70R18 tires will work on my current stock 18" rims?

LOOKING AT PRO COMP 7031 17x9 5x5 alloy. what tire brand and size will fit with no problems. stock 2013 2 door wrangler . the more I read the more I get confused

I love the look of DesertDozer's Jeep. These are 33X12.5x17R Cooper Discoverer STT (review) on 17x9 4.5"BS Ballistic Jester 814s with no lift. (actual tire size 32.76" x 12.54")
not why this WF member's ride looks so diff. should look identical and it doesn't.
I'm going for the same wide full fender look for my yet to be delivered 14 Rubicon X. I am not concerned about rubbing while offroading. It will be a daily driver so things like handling in snow/rain and road noise are most important.
Here's my problem. I know nothing about those Cooper tires. Anyone have anything good to say about them? are they loud on pavement? do they grab the road?
good WF reviews here
WF STT vs MTR talk here. they give it to MTR for sidewall
good WF review here too
glowing WF reviews here. sounds like a done deal.
I love the Goodyear Wrangler MTRs (review) that were on my last Jeep & those aren't available in 33 x 12.5 17R. The MTRs are quiet on road & grab the pavement great. Best big offroad tire I ever had on pavement in rain or snow.
Here's what's close.
LT285/70R17 = actual size 33 x 11.5
a full inch skinnier which I'm not happy about. I want fat tires sticking out past the wheel wells.
LT305/70R17 = actual size 34.1 x 12.2
close enough in width but 1.34" taller which i'm assuming won't fit. already looking pretty snug.
If I drop to a 16R rim LT305/70R16 = actual size 33.1 x 12.2
seems like a good tire size but the Jester rims don't come in 16"
as much as I want to get these, I'm not sure there's one that will give me the same look.
I looked at the forum favorites Goodyear Duratrac but they have the same size issues.
General Grabber AT2 (review) makes a 33 x 12.5 x 17R that's damn near the identical actual size (32.8 x 12.5) but again, I know nothing about these tires.
what to do, what to do?? maybe I'll just go w/ the coopers & keep my fingers crossed. would love some feedback.

This page explains the difference between backspace & offset. They are essentially 2 different way to measure the same spec. There is a chart on that page that lets you easily convert between the two.
you have an 8.5" wide rim with a -6 offset. if you look at the chart for an 8.5" wide rim a -6 offset is the equivalent of 4.5" backspace. sounds like you are good to go.
