My recently purchased '16 Sport S does not have factory
original wheels.
It has the dark gray 17" wheels shown in the photo. Does anyone know which model and year JK came equipped with these wheels?

A quick Google search says they are the rubicon recon wheels. I have no personal experience with them so I very well might be wrong.

Thanks, I pulled up a google photo of the 2017 Recon and you are correct. Now the mystery as to how they happened to get installed on a much more humble Sport.

I bet the previous owner wanted the Rubicon wheels and tires as the tires are more aggressive and bigger in size. I know several sport owners who have done this.
