Nitto 37x12.50x18 on sahara wheel? Help Please

I have a brand new set of NITTO DUNE GRAPPLER TIRES 37x12.50x18.
(Nitto Dune Grappler 37X12.50R18D2 123R B)

I also have the 18 inch stock 5 spoke sahara rims...

My jeep is a 97 4.0 manual wrangeer TJ with 100,000 miles. Firstly, can I put these tires on these rims? (I LOVE the look) Also, my car is stock. What would you recommend I need to get this set up. Im a city driver, with occasional camping/fishing etc. No hardcore offroading.

What sort of lift? transmission? engine/ or other upgrades would be recommended.

Any advice would help.

Thank you

Chad, Welcome Aboard!

The Sahara rims are a bit narrow for those tires. Also, the JK Wranglers have a 5 on 5 bolt pattern and I believe the TJ has a 4.5 on 5 bolt pattern. You would need and adapter.
