Will LT255/75R17 fit?

I'm looking to buy 5 stock wheels and tires from a 2015 wrangler hardrock edition, LT255/75R17. Will they fit my 2012 grand Cherokee overland with no issues?? I don't want to do any permanent mods as the wheels will only be used for off roading. Thanks for any input!

They should fit. I had the Sahara 18 inch on my 2011 for about a year they look good, but it was a close fit I was never comfortable making turns. I don't know about others but it made my steering stiff. I had to go back to my original wheels.

17s may not work if you have the HD brakes on your Overland...clearance issues.

Thanks for the replies! I'm sorry I don't know what HD brakes are (my husband is the car enthusiast, not me so much lol). How can I tell if I have those brakes?

If your rear rotors are vented you have the HD brakes. If they are solid you do not.

Thank you! I think we will get the tires and see how they work. They are too good of a deal to pass up. I appreciate everyone's input!
