Sahara wheels on 14 hemi or diesel

I've seen a lot of mixed info on this so to clarify, I wanted to start a thread specifically on this topic.

1. Do the JK Sahara wheels stick out more than the stock WK2 wheels? It seems that they sit in further (narrower track) and rub the caliper on the v8/diesel models.

2. Do stock Sahara 18" wheels and tires fit on the WK2? It seems like they only fit the v6 and will fit the v8/diesel only with spacers.

3. Tires- how do you like the stock Bridgestone Dueler AT RHS tires from the Sahara? Rating in snow, dry, noise, etc.?

4. Pics- it would be nice to have one thread with a picture compilation of JK Sahara wheels on the WK2 Grand Cherokees.

I look at getting Sahara take offs as a really good and cheap way for us WK2 owners to get replacement wheels and tires. I'm looking to get some myself and want to make sure I have the info to make a good decision.

Re: Sahara wheels on 14 hemi or diesel

I am also interested in this. Also, have read mixed comments on whether they fit or not. Some folks have had no issues, some have had to grind down the caliper clips. I'm with you and would like some clarification. I have not heard about the v-6 v/s v-8 one fits the other doesn't. Are you just talking about the the oversized brakes on the SRT? Since the offset is less,I believe they would stick out further by about 10mm.

I think the rubbing on the calipers is on the v8/diesel due to the oversized brakes. It doesn't make sense that it sticks out more (wider track) and still hit the caliper.

Sahara wheels are 18", so I don't see why they'd rub. Rubicon wheels are 17" and it's been rumored that they rub on the GCs with HD brakes. (Hemi/diesels). However, someone on another forum fit and cleared them. It's super close but they fit. Of course it's so close, it can be expected that Your results may vary. I'm not sure if '14s would have a different outcome either.

Can you post a link to the thread where someone cleared them? I had given up hope, but now I'm more than slightly excited!!
