I’m kinda curious why this Jeep has non Rubicon wheels on it??
Being that it only has 4K miles and is stock.

I guess they are similar apart from the hollows on the 05 being painted.
Those look identical to the one's I posted....
Are yours painted on the inside? I can't tell from the pic. My eyes are not as good as you young people.

Jeep was purchased from a old man and wanted a smaller tire so the dealer swapped out the rubicon wheel for the Cherokee ones. 225/r15. Tires are date coded early 06. These wheels are flawless but not correct.

Ah, I see that now I wouldn't call that "quite" different than the standard Rubicon MOAB wheels Same wheel, Sahara's have a darker powder-coat between the "spokes" and in the lug-nut depressions.

3 of these are good, but for $140, it might be worth finding a 4th wheel later:
