18" Wheels on My 17" Sahara?

Can I put my 18" wheels & tires from my 2012 Sahara Unlimited on my 2009 Sahara 2 door which currently has 17" wheels? Any drawback in making the change?

Yes you can. Drawbacks would be much more expensive tires when it comes time to replace them and less sidewall which may result in a little stiffer ride.

Thanks. I was able to pick up a set of 5 18" Sahara wheels & tires today for $650.00. They have the pressure sensors, center caps, and exactly 200 mile on them (they are perfect) This seems like a better deal than buying new tires to replace the 17" on my 2009 Sahara. After I change the wheels I will sell the 17" ones.
