I know this may be a repetitive question about wheels, but I am looking to upgrade my wheels and tires, but not sure of which way to go for my 2016 JKU Sahara (stock height)
Option 1
stock wheels, 18 x 7.5, +44 mm offset and just upgrade tires to 275/65/18
or
Option 2
Tuff T01 wheels, 18 x 9, 10 mm offset with 275/65/18

The tires that I am looking at...are the NITTO Terra Grappler G2 or the EXO Grappler. Will I need wheels spacers for either option?

Any thoughts of which option I should take?

Personally, I do not like the sahara stock wheels. I also do not like the Tuff either...too much bling for me! Not sure about the spacers, I am sure someone could comment on that. Check out the KO2 tires, they seem to be the best consumer friendly tires on the market.

275 is the cut off point for the oem wheels and needing wheel spacers, so you should be good.

Your aftermarket wheel choice has a backspacing of 4.61, so you're good to go with up to a 315 wide tire.
