putting 2013 Jeep Rubicon wheels on my 2005 Jeep Wrangler TJ

Asked by Aug 21, 2014 at 10:27 PM about the 2005 Jeep Wrangler X

Question type: Car Customization

I can get a deal on a set of factory wheels and tires off of a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
that I would like to install on my 2005 Wrangler TJ. I know I have to get a
spacer/adaptors due to lug pattern, but my question is will this switch work without having
to install a lift kit? I am worried that the tires are going to rub or hit when I hit big bumps.
Anyone has the answer on this?

You should be fine running 32s on a 2005 TJ unless you have significant wieght like a heavy bumper with winch causing the front to sag.

I have 2014 18 in stock jeep rims under mine and I haven't had any problem bud I haven't been in any bad stuff they do scrub if you are backing up

I would also like to put 2014 18" stock Jeep Rubicon wheels on my 2005 Jeep Wrangler but without having to install a lift kit. So, please humor me with 3 questions: 1: to Oldman11050, do you have 18 in stock "Rubicon" rims and is yours a 2005 Wrangler? And 2: To mtbventana, did you actually install 2014 Jeep Rubicon 16s, 17s or 18s on your 2005 Jeep Wrangler? And 3: how did it work out, if you did install them? Thanks
