Oem 16" won't fit on my jeep.
 
I have a 2010 unlimited sport with 17" rims, never modified. I wanted to get wider tires for the sand. Since I'm in Argentina, it's not easy to get tires for 17" rims, so I got some OEM 16" wrangler rims.
But when I tried to put them, they whouldn't fit because of the caliper.
How is this possible !!! THE RIMS ARE OEM !!!
Some guys use 15" rims !

PD: my brake discs are 33cm or 13" in diameter.

Pretty sure that imports have larger brakes/calipers then US models

Are they older rims for TJ Wranglers if so they are 5 on 4.5. the JK's I believe are 5 on 5. Arent all OEM rims for JK's 5 on 5?

Edit nevermind I just read the problem is the calipers....Disregard my post

Sorry to confirm, but OEM diameter for the front rotors on a 2010 JKU sport is 30.2cm, or 11.89". Either they are built different for export, or your dealer installed a brake upgrade kit pre-sale.

Someone posted awhile back from Australia I believe that they finally found a set of 16" that fit but it was hard to find. Maybe they can chime in.

It's so weird, there are many Wranglers here with the same rims I want to install !
All the Jks are supposed to have the same rotos, right ?
