Will Sahara wheels & tires fit on my stock base '12?

I've got a chance to buy a set of 5 Sahara 18" wheels & tires with only 400 miles. My bone stock base model 2012 2-door has the 16" steelies.

Will the Sahara setup bolt straight up to my Jeep without any changes? I realize the speedometer might need to be reset with a Procal but I'm talking about clearance problems or rubbing. I don't do any serious off roading so the Sahara stuff is fine for me as long as they fit and improve the looks over the 16" stuff I have now.

For those who came in late, let me give a quick review of the answer.


Yes.

Upon further review, the answer is still yes. There is no difference between the Sport and Sahara other than creature comforts and some shiny bits.
