Newbie question
Hey guys, had a quick question about tire and wheel compatibility. I currently have a 2013 JKU with stock 17" wheels with the stock tires. Saw a good deal on craigslist for 5 Rubicon tires for 500$. However it's only the tires and I was wondering if I'd be able to fit these tires on my current wheels.

The specs for the tires are 255/75/R17

should fit, as the stock heights are all the same, you can fit up to a 33 by 11 without much rubbing issues, however this is only speaking from my experience (i run 33s on my 2 door) however, the extra weight of the Unlimited might cause a little rubbing, as it may be slightly sagged due to weight. (last statement may be bullshit, just remember reading that somewhere)
Since it is a popular wheel, you could call a dealer and they would probably be able to answer your questions. or check the thread "what size of tire can you fit on a stock height wrangler" or smthn along that line.
hope this helped

Thanks, I appreciate it. Picking the tires up tomorrow gonna get a shop to put them on my wheels and on my jeep. Hopefully they'll buy my stock tires off of me

^i sold my tires to the same place that i bought the wheels/tires from so you can try to do the same.
