JK Sahara 18x7.5 255/70/18 fitment

Hi,
New guy here....
Will factory 18x7.5 JK Sahara rims with 255/70/18's (32") fit on a 2014 Laredo 3.6L w/o air suspension? Right now I have the factory 17x8 with 245/70/17's (30.5")
Thanks.

Pretty sure the Sahara wheels will fit, but it's not for certain.

I know specifically of another member here who posted photos after he got his installed (not a 2014, but still WK2) and he had about a centimeters worth of space before they hit the calipers. They still worked for him though.

*Search "Sahara" in the WK2 section. Quite a few people have them mounted. FYI

Re: JK Sahara 18x7.5 255/70/18 fitment

Well...I ended up bolting on a set of rims/tires from 2014 Sahara yesterday and I'm loving it! 18x7.5 with 255/70/18 Bridgestone Dueler A/T's (32"). Had to use a 1/8" shims on front to clear anti-rattle clip on caliper(just barely made contact on inside of rim. only skimmed the clear coat on inside of rim. probably wouldn't need them if pads had some wear. I ended up using same shims on rear to keep the same track width. Looks much better and no tire clearance issues at all. See before and after pics!

I work at a dealership.
I purchased the set of 5 for $500.00
I will sell my factory set for $500.00
Cost = $0
That's the story
