255/70/r18 Bridgestones off JK Sahara....fit 18" Laredo X

Hi! I have seen some guys on here throwing the Sahara wheels/tires on their WK2s but will the tires themselves work on my Laredo X with it's stock 18" wheels? Found a new set of the tires for good deal. Thanks for any help.

Yes should fit fine, many other GC owners are running those rims and tires because they mostly come as take offs from wranglers

They'll fit your rims but they're not great tires. If they were there wouldn't be as many available for as cheap as they go. I got rid of mine ASAP in 2007 off my JK. They'll always be a cheap available replacement.

Fit no problem on my limited for my snow tires...front/rear pic. Since they are narrower than the factory 265's, that's not an issue either.

What size lug nuts did you use?
I am concerned on the length to buy, in order to fit my sahara rims for next winter use.

Not sure, my tire guys put on what was needed when I first got them...guess I'll find out when I take them off myself

Re: 255/70/r18 Bridgestones off JK Sahara....fit 18" Laredo X

Not sure if you guys are still watching this thread, but I just picked up a set of 2013 18" 7 spoke chrome wheels wrapped in 255/70r18 bridgestones on them. Since I am rocking a stock height 2013 Laredo, will there be any tire clearance issues at all?

Just wondering.

Thanks.

Shouldn't be at all, narrower but taller, fills up the wells from the side better, I had no rubbing or anything.
