I'm new to the Jeep world. Quick question...I have a 2008 JKU with 18inch stock rims. I love the Willys rims and could possibly have a hookup for a set. They are size 17. Would this even work? I'm I dreaming? Thanks in advance!

The TPMS frequency changed starting in 2013. So, you'll need to change the sensor in each wheel. Beyond that, you should be OK.

Why new tires? Sizing? I have new tires that were put on when I bought it. Again, I apologize for not knowing. Single Mom. But I know more than most. 😉

Thanks! Whomever I ask to mount them should be able to do this I would guess?

Yes the tire shop can move the sensors from your old wheels to the new wheels. They are inside the wheel. They have to take the tire off to get to the sensor. You will probably have to pay them to dismount the tire.
The wheels that you want are 17 inches in diamenter. Your old wheels arms tires are 18 inches. If you buy the new wheels your old tires will not fit. Is the seller keeping the tires and only selling you the wheels?

You mentioned that your Jeep has 18 inch wheels. If you get the Willys wheels without tires, your current tires wont fit. The Willys wheels are 17 inch.

yes. I'm aware they are 17inch. Just didn't know if it was possible to put the 18inch tire on them.
OK.

A 17 inch tire will not mount on an 18 inch wheel.

Conversely, an 18 inch tire will not mount on a 17 inch wheel.
