will Sahara 18" wheels fit on my JKUR

I have a 2015 JKUR HR with the factory wheels and BFG 255/75/17 MT's. I am looking at some takeoffs for driving around town. I see a lot of Bridgestone Dueler AT's. There are tons of Goodyears but they seem to all get poor rating from my searches.

Same bolt pattern, back spacing and similar overall dimension. The preferred 17" size has better selection of tires.

It seems that most people go from 18” to 17” as noted above. I just bought my Sahara and the dealer put five new tires on it. I want to get slightly larger tires but it’s hard to justify.

I have a 2017 JK SPORT stock and put a set of 18' saraha take off wheels and tires on . No problems at all . Fast forward I now have a set of recon take off 17" BF Goodrich MT that i like the looks of but would not of believed how different it rides now..I wanted the look but paid the price in ride quality ! Now considering an AT tire .

Thanks, I like my BFG AT's with my 17" Rubicon HR wheels, but looking on craigslist and such there are a bunch of like new takeoff Sahara 18" wheels with tires mounted, balanced, and tpms installed for a lot cheaper than I can buy just the tires at the tire shops. Thought since my Jeep is driven 80%+ on pavement, I can use the AT's when I go offroad.

Those are 18" Sahara rims that were originally chrome plated and I had them sandblasted and powder coated matte black.

I picked up a set of 5 from a 19 Sahara with 300 miles on them for $500. Can't beat that for daily driving.

Yep, fit just fine... As mentioned, it's more common to go from 18 to 17 for tire selection. But for a winter tire or DD tire if you have some aggressive M/T's on the 17's, the 18 work just fine.

And yes, it's hard to pass up a brand new set of take offs for $400-$500....
