    Bought these 17 x 7.5
    Wheels I want to fit them to my KJ
    Of course they are not the correct lug pattern going to need adapter...
    Will they work what size space to get.
    Running stock suspension.
    I have 265-65-17 inch tires.

    Sell em and buy the wheels and tires that actually fit
    stock suspension, those tires NEVER going to happen without a real lift

    with spacers to make wheels work , they will rub and tear off flares when turning
    tires are 31s and need at least 2.5-3 inches of full spring lift ( not a spacer lift )

    Just not going to work no matter what you do, unless its doing it right

    I’m afraid Tom’s right. What you want are the 16” TJ Moabs, not the 17” JK Moabs. The TJ Moabs have the right bolt pattern, but would still require a good lift to work properly. They are harder to find and pricier than the JK rims, which seem to be pretty available and inexpensive these days.
