Question Specific Wheel Fitment Thread

Hey guys,

I hope you guys can help me out. I bought some of the "Call of Duty" 17 inch wheels second hand because I loved the look and color. I still have a set of stock wheels on the car for now but I will be putting these on very soon. I am looking at getting 34 inch tires with those wheels (315/70R17) but I am concerned there will be problems. I have a rough country 2.5 inch lift kit on the car, will that be enough? Also will I need to re-gear with 34s? That's a big factor as well.

Specs of cars and wheels:

Jeep:
  • Rough Country 2.5 inch spacer Lift
  • Stubby Front Bumper

Wheels:
  • Call of Duty 17inch Wheels
  • 17x7.5
  • 44.45 offset
  • Falken Rocky Mtn ATS II (in 315/70R17) - Planned

Pictures of wheels:

You definitely have enough lift for that size tire. As far as gearing what do you have now, and is it auto or manual? I am planning on 2.5 lift with 35s and flat fenders and regearing from 3.73 to 4.56 or 4.88, and trussing up my front axle and stuff. I may run short term on the 3.73 depending how all the work times out-I have been told it will be driveable but a bit of a dog. I suspect eventually you will decide there is a regear in your future.

Cant help you on the tire/wheel stuff as I am currently struggling to find my own tires and wheels that fit together lol!

PS Never ever ever call a Wrangler a car. A kitten dies every time someone does-save the kitties! A Prius...is a car. A Wrangler is...a Wrangler.

The only insurmountable problem you are facing is that your JK is a Jeep not a "car".

you will need spacers or you will rub your cars front sway bars and you will be very close on the driver's side rear control arm. Without spacers I had about 1/2" clearance on my narrower 285/75-17 tires with stock rims.

Alright thanks for the heads up on that. From what I see online people are all pretty weary of spacers. It's probably for the best anyways. I don't need to have 34's on the car even though I really want them. I will go with the 285/70-17 instead and just stick with a 33.

not to be a buzzkill but you are going to run into the same issues with those. If you want to run stock rims you need spacers or you will have clearance issues unless you don't plan on going off road. Even then at max turn on the street you will rub sway bar up front. Spacers get such a bad rap but if you get quality spacers and install them per the instructions ie properly you will not have any issues.

No apology required. It's just a Jeep tradition like waving.

Think I should get spacers for the front and the rear? I feel like I probably should or else it would look kind of funny.

I ran SpiderTrax spacers on my old Jeep and run them on my current one now. 2+ years and zero issues. Install and torque properly. If you want to run factory wheels and oversize rubber without rubbing it's really your only option.

I'm running 315/70/17's and I don't rub.

Hello again, another question....

New jeep owner, first jeep product, 2014 2-door JK Willy's edition. Ordered AEV 2.5 XT lift w/steering correction kit, etc ... Trying to order Fuel wheels 17x8.5 but uncertain with offset and backspacing, 2 options available for this wheel size, will be running GY DuraTracs 315/70R17.

1. -6 mm offset with 4.50" back (p/n D55717857345)
2. 6mm offset with 5.00" back (p/n D55717857350)

Guy says they will sit the tire almost same?!? I want the tire to sit well, no rub while not pushed outwards any further than required. Can someone help me understand these numbers please?

Thanks,

Em ...

Are you running these 315/70R17 on stock 17x7.5" wheels?

I'm ordering new wheels cause I was told that tire size requires a rim width range from 8.5" ~ 10"?

No problem. And thanks. I really liked the stock wheels and was glad I could use those with 35's.

Seems me and you are the only ones who really like the stock Rubi rims. I have yet to see an aftermarket or stock rim I like better. I also have no issues running Spidertrax spacers. Just checked mine again today and still solid at 80ft/lbs

When I first saw pictures of the 2013 Rubi wheels I absolutely hated them. Then I saw them in person and decided they weren't that bad. The more I saw them the more I liked them. When I finally purchased my '13 I knew the stock wheels were staying.

And yep, SpiderTrax spacers have caused me no issues either. Check the torque every 5000 km at rotation time and not one nut has moved.

I completely agree with you guys the stock rubi wheels are sick! I don't understand the hate. Ordered the Spacers and I ordered the 34 in Falken Rocky Mtn ATS 2's. Hurray!

I too really like the stock Rubi rims so thanks for the spacer advice, I will go that way when it is time for a tyre change.

OP, off topic but Inthought that I would sneak in a pic of my other wheels.

In case anyone was curious I got the wheels and tires on. Definitely rubs like said above and will be adding spacers this afternoon/tomorrow morning. See image of awesome looking wrangler below.
