18 x 9 wheel & tire question

My tires need to be replaced on my 2009 Jeep Wrangler X. I was looking at the Moto Metal 961 Satin Black and going with Nitto Terra Grapplers 285/65-18. Am I going to have a problem with rubbing or my braking?
Thanks for the help....I've had several Jeeps, but they always came already lifted with bigger tires, this is the first time I am doing it from scratch and just want to make sure it will work.

Thanks again!

The 961 is an 18x9 with an +18mm offset. These would work fine with a 285/65R18 but if you plan on running a larger/wider tire in the future you may want to find a wheel that is 18x9 with a -12mm offset. The 285/65R18 will fit without a lift.

Thumbs up

what if I want to lift it in the future, will the +18 offset still work with a bigger tire?

And thanks for the advice earlier. I appreciate it!

Nope, the wheel would be to tucked in to put a larger tire on. From what I have seen posted on here.

Scoob is correct. If you want to run a wider and taller tire in the future (with the addition of a lift) go with a wheel that has is 18x9 with a -12mm offset. This will give you the clearance to run at least a 12.5" wide tire in the future.
