I just picked up a 06 LJ Rubicon with 4K miles, but it has the wrong wheels. Looking for a close to mint set to finish out the Jeep. I will take spares if they are available.

4k miles? Wow, what a find! Post pics of this unicorn, best of luck with the wheels.

Here it is. The pics don’t do justice. Every option minus the hard top. I will just have to find one when it comes around. It’s like driving a new car.

I don't think the OP has a Sahara edition... but, now I'm curious about what the Sahara edition wheels look like?

I'll go get a picture.

One day I was walking out the grocery store and someone was walking around the Jeep. He was a Jeeper, and he said this was the only 05 Rubicon Sahara in Mobile, then he asked if I wanted to sell the wheels. I don't see anything great about them, they are different than the 06 wheels you posted.
I guess they are similar apart from the hollows on the 05 being painted.

Are yours painted on the inside? I can't tell from the pic. My eyes are not as good as you young people.

I’m kinda curious why this Jeep has non Rubicon wheels on it??
Being that it only has 4K miles and is stock.
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:wink2: I wouldn't call that "quite" different than the standard Rubicon MOAB wheels:smile2: Same wheel, Sahara's have a darker powder-coat between the "spokes" and in the lug-nut depressions.

I am out of town tonight, but I'll be returning home tomorrow. I have Pretty set (5) of Moabs that came off my 06 LJ, 75k at swap with <30" P series tires. I can send you Close Ups tomorrow if you're still looking.
