Urgent: Need new tires tomorrow, can I fit 275/70/18 KO2s on Stock 2012 JK Sahara?

I need new tires tomorrow, can I fit 275/70/18 KO2s on Stock 2012 JKU Sahara?

I'm not doing a lift right now or any mods. Just want to see if this will fit? Hoping for a quick answer, big rush. Has anyone done this sizing?

Please help. Thank you.

That’s a 33 x 10.5 - you should be good

It should fit height wise, but you may get a little bit of rub against the sway bar when at full turn.

My (285/70/17) KO2s also rubbed ever so slightly on the inner fender liner when flexing offroad. So slight I didn't know until after when I saw the mud marks on the liner.

That said yours would be 10mm narrower and may not rub at all.

I'd think its a pretty safe bet.

When you and others say it may get a little rub against the sway bar and/or the air dams, is that at full turn? Or constant?

It was at full turn up front and full flex in rear when off-roading. 99.9% of the time there is no interference at all on mine.

Wouldn't it be closer to 10.8?

You are correct - closer to 10.8
Either way, should still be OK
