We had this discussion when I had mine mounted and they measured them before putting them on. They measured wider than 7.5 so the shop mounted them with a small hesitation. They came back and said they didn’t have any trouble at all. I am guessing a Discount Tire or chain would give you more trouble than a local shop.Just for FYI, stock rims are 7.5" and most 35 recommend 8" and up. Some/most tires shops won't mount them for liability reasons. Plenty people here have done it, and I can't recall anyone having any issues.
You can also get the new Satin Black Quadratec Hard Rock wheels which look very similar to the Willys wheels but are 17x8.5 with 5.2 backspace.Just for FYI, stock rims are 7.5" and most 35 recommend 8" and up.

Does that tire measure 34 on the vehicle?Here’s a pic of mine with 285/75-17 (34” x 10.5”) Nitto Ridge Grapplers on OEM Willys Wheeler wheels (yes, on a Hard Rock). They’re aired down to 15psi in this pic. The 34” tire fits this wheel just fine, but I was running 1.5” wheels spacers to avoid any rubbing. This is also with a 2” Rancho Lift.
No, I think I measured them at 33" or 33.25"....something like that. that's with 33psi. Tire size is 285/75-17, but it says 34x10.50 on the sidewall as well. I'd measure again for you today, but my JKU has been at the dealership for the past few days waiting on an axle seal repair.Does that tire measure 34 on the vehicle?
Can't seem to edit this post so I'll quote it.Tire size is 285/75-17, but it says 34x10.50 on the sidewall as well.
