Anyone try these yet on their JK?

https://www.amazon.com/Pro-Comp-Stee...05944977&psc=1

I was thinking about getting these for my 2012 JK. Backspacing, and bolt pattern will fit according to my research. Since they are steel, I was wondering if anyone is running these, and what spacers they needed or did not need to fit them?

Thanks

also, be aware that, while many 15" alloy wheels will fit over the Wrangler's brake calipers, most 15" steel wheels will not.

Personally I'm not a fan of 15" wheels since they eliminate your ability to run a larger tie rod and/or big brake kit. Almost all of those require a minimum 17" wheel, some require 18".
Good luck!

Yeah I searched that thread and every other thread high and low. already. It says SOME steelies won't fit. Others say some will, or some will with spacers. That's why I asked. I'm not going to upgrade tie rods or calipers. I have no reason for it. I just want a 15 for looks.

I ran those PC wheels in 15x10 on both my 2008 JKU and 2011 JKU, no issues.

Nice, thank you for a response that wasn't telling me I shouldn't go to 15s and 15 inch tires are WAYYY more expensive than my 17s.

Did you use any spacers or anything, or did they fit right on?

They fit fine. No spacers or grinding needed.

I'm a huge fan of 15" wheels and only went away from them because I upgraded my steering to 1 ton gear.

I still run 15" wheels on my CJ.

I ran those wheels on my TJ for awhile years ago. Lots of balance and wobble problems after wheeling with lower air pressures. I think the steel changes shape slightly when wheeling in rough terrain.
I went back to alloy wheels and never had a problem since. I spent a little more and bought some similar looking black alloy wheels.

Yeah I'm not worried about any of that. I'll be running normal air pressure on normal roads.
