Tire/Wheel Swap Question

I have a 2011 Sahara Unlimited, it came with Bridgeston Dueler A/T P255/70R18 from the factory and it is nearing time to replace them. I came across a set of five take off factory wheels and tires from a 2007 Unlimited, the tires are Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor P255/75R17 with around 1,500 miles on them, he is asking $1,100 for the 5 of them.

Some questions:

~What is the advantage of a 18" rim over a 17"?

~Any fit issues?

~Is there a market for used 18" factory Jeep wheels?

~Why would I want these vs. buying the same tire new and mounting them on my 18" rims (4 mounted w/tax $866)?

Thanks in advance

the 18s will run u a bit more when u decide to upgrade tires.

No fitment issues. ur 2011 is interchangeable with all jk's.
- if your planning to upsize tires...then maybe, but if your planning to keep it stock, u got the green light.

yes...check craigslist.com.

it will depend on your budget. I can't make you decide, but i can help. once again, try craigslist. you can get a set of rubicon take offs that come with better tires for about the same price...best of all, you have the power to negotiate a deal.

Good luck
