I bought some stock 05 or 06? aluminum Rubicon wheels (12”) and tires in 25”. These were new! The Rubicon owner pulled them off when he bought it. I then sold my stock 08 Rancher tires and wheels to someone in the bush for the same price as the new Rubicon tires and wheels. So the Rancher has been running 25s since new. There have been no issues with the 25s.
