I just put a set on my limited and you get a little more road noise but not much. The sensors in mine matched right up and the jeep read them in about a mile of driving.

Re: Sahara wheels on 14 hemi or diesel

Do our stock lugnuts fit the Sahara wheels?
I was gonna buy some ltx defenders to put on my stock wheels but found a set of new take offs for $500 for all 5. The ltx's are probably better tires for my purposes but these are too good a deal.

Nice looking set of wheels, what is the offset/backspace on those vs the oem 18"

Re: Sahara wheels on 14 hemi or diesel

If anyone is still interested I purchased a set of '15 JK sahara wheels and am picking them up for my 2013 WK Laredo (V6) on Monday. I can definitely post photos and detail any potential issues I encounter. I'm pretty confident they'll fit fine from what I hear.

Re: Sahara wheels on 14 hemi or diesel

From reading the sticky I understand the 16 suspension changed but should Sahara take offs still work with the 2016 and 2017s?

Thanks
Jay

Did you do the Sahara wheel swap? Would really like to see and hear your feed back.

Hey, yeah! So I had them professionally mounted and balanced - didn't trust myself to do it - the mechanic said he was shocked but they DID indeed fit, much to my relief. As others have said, they come very close to the caliper but do not interfere. After driving with them everyday for a couple of weeks now, there is NO rubbing I am pleased to report.

In terms of ride quality the WK2 rides just marginally harder than with the stock 17" rims with Forteras. Around town it's hardly noticeable, but at 75+ mph it doesn't chug along as effortlessly, but its still a WK2 with the same suspension so it's not like it's NOT smooth.

Also in my original post I said WK Laredo, but hopefully you gathered that I meant WK2!

Here's photos - http://imgur.com/a/o5pmi

Hope this helps

Re: Sahara wheels on 14 hemi or diesel

Your truck looks great. The Jk wheels do not look tucked as I thought they would. Mine rub the Caliper bracket so I have to use a spacer for sure. I'm just trying to decide which one to use.
