Personally, I'd run a 10" wide wheel for a 13.50. 9" is fine for a 12.50.

JIMBOX I know that! This rim is an 18x9 and has the correct lug size (5x5) and the correct offset for my lift. I really like these rims and even if there 9" wide they should still work fine right? Is there any suggestions for rims you have that are 18x10? What are you running?

I have a 07 Rubicon with a 6'' long arm 37x12.5x17 BFGs on 17x9.5 with 3.5bs. The only problem I have run into with a wider tire is that it rubs the sway bar on full compression when I'm turned. Found out the hard way when I tore the side wall. I think the 13.5 will look good on 9'' wheels just check the back spacing?

Yeah the backspacing is correct and everything else works out perfectly. I just wasn't sure about the 9" rim.
