New Wheels/Tires Question

So, I have posted this on the tire and wheel thread, but only received one answer, so, I was hoping someone out there would have a solid answer for me.

I am purchasing a set of 18" sahara wheels (7 spoke chrome) off a 2013 with new Dueler 255/70r18's. Just making sure that they will fit with no rubbing. I have read as many threads as I can about it, but there really isn't that much info out there.

So, hopefully someone can give me some info on this.

2013 E-group with base 17's

Also, no lift, leveling kit or spacers. Some people that have that set up say its fine and others have stated the inverse. Just trying to see what is what.

most people are going with a 275/65/18. use the tire chat convertir see how tall it is.. 275/65/18 JUST BARELY fits. its is roughly 32" anything more = rubbing or more mods

Re: New Wheels/Tires Question

the weird thing is, I have asked other people since I've posted this thread and they have the same setup, with no problems. Ugh

LOL. Just gave me an efing heart attack.

Thats what I thought, but I guess we will find out. Once they are on, I will certainly do a full: "lock to lock" on the steering wheel, hit the road and bring it to speed (80 or so) and go over some speed bumps just to make sure.

Also, I don't really plan on doing any heavy offroading, just primarily a mall crawler.

Sunday is the magic day, so I will post pics and report on performance after they are on.
