Tire question (sorry search didnt help)

I have a 09 Sahara with 255\70\18 which are 32.1 diam and 10.2 width

will these fit - 265\70\18 which are 32.6 diam and 10.7 width.



This JK has no lift but for some reason I'm guessing the springs sits higher than most and has no rake what so ever. I want to put some beefier tires on it but at this point don't want a lift because its just a daily driver and will probably be at full flex well at least not for many years.

The only thing with JK's is the wheels have so much backspacing along with the rear upper control arms being so far out on the axle have some clearance issues. Were you going to do new wheels also?

That's a tough call on if they'll rub on the rear upper control arm then. You might want to see if you have a half inch plus of room right now.
