Very Nice! The white lettering looks perfect with those wheels.

I just swapped my 18" Sahara wheels with 35's for the 17" JL Rubi wheels and new 315/70r17 tires.
From this...

Stock JK lugnuts work fine. I am running 1.5" Spidertrax spacers due to the bigger tires.

When I bought the Jeep, it had 18" Sahara wheels on it and 35x12.5x18 tires, no spacers. Also an RC 3.5" lift.
Yes, rubbing on the stock lower control arms. It also drove like crap at highway speeds.
1.5" spacers and adjustable lower control arms cured all that, even before I swapped for the JL wheels and 315's.

I got a great deal on the JL wheels a few months ago. I wasn’t sure I liked them at first, but they have really grown on me.

JL Rubicons w/stock BFGs on a JK will rub at full lock with no spacer. Also, use stock JK lugs. The JL sensors will read fine.

Here's my 2018 2 door sport. I'll add that I did not add spacers. I only rub a little on the drivers front sway bar at full lock. And, if you fully articulate the rear drivers side, it will rub on the sway bar, too. Current setup with 2" lift and axles centered yields 1/2" additional fender coverage @ all 4 corners.
