My recollection is that they're 7.5" wide, though it may be 8".

Either way, you'll need to add spacers, which will add about $200 to the transaction. Also, tires for 18" wheels are pricier than similarly sized tires for smaller wheels.

Bottomline: You're probably not going to save money this way.

They are stamped 18x7.5 with 44.45mm offset (6.0" backspace)

I think it is 7.5 for the stock Sahara wheels (at least for the 2007-2012) and 7.0 for the polished aluminum versions.
