Grog Many 15" rims won't clear the calipers without spacers. IMO you are better off with 17" rims. 18" rims are fine but tires are much more expensive in that size. You may need a lift. I like the Teraflex performance levelling kit which is a coil levelling kit instead of pucks, and inexpensive.

SaharaCon my sahara came stock with 18'' rims and 32'' tires... not the mud-terrain tires... anyway, im planning on putting on 33''x 12.5 nitto mud grapplers on my 07 sahara and of what im told, im gonna need 1''+ lift and spacers... so im planning on doing a 1.5'' spring spacer lift and some wheel spacers to fit the tires... apparently if you get flat fenders you wont have to lift it... but you'll still need the wheel spacers if you want a tire any wider than 10''.... good luck bro!

seadog My stock sahara 18" rims measure out to 32.8" tires. About the same as 33" tires.

They're tall, but skinny.

4Jeepn Not sure on the lift, but I know only some/few 15" rims will work on the JK. I am sure someone else will chime in.

do I need a lift?

I have a 07 Sahara and the front sets level with the back. I have the stock 18in rims on now but want to switch to a 15in rim with 33's I was wondering if im going to need a lift to fit the 33's and if I will need spacers or not? Any help would be great.
