New tires

Hey y'all,

Sorry if this has been asked a million times, but a search didn't pull up exactly what I was looking for. Anyway, I have 18" rims (factory tires and rims, not sure size), and am buying tires with 16" rims, also factory rims. My question is, do I need to do anything to the brake rotors before I bolt the 16's on, or can I just bolt them on?

Thanks in advance!

I'm pretty sure you'll be ok. I'm not familiar with the '07, but from what I've read about most of the JK's is that 16" will fit. Some 15" rims will fit, but not all.
