Wrangler Wheels & Tires on 2014 Limited

Hey guys,

I've searched around but can't find a definite answer... We've recently got snow here up in the great white north (yes i know its September 9th...) and so I'm looking to get a jump on getting some winter tires and I'm wondering if some 255/70/18 winters off a 12' Sahara will fit my 14' Limited? The only concern I have is that with the bigger overall circumference, that I may run into some rubbing issues on the upper control arm joints as someone had expressed earlier in their Off Road 18's thread. The wheels are good to go with 5x5" just the tire size I'm worried about.

Any of the brain trusts have a good idea if I can fit 255/70's on a 2014??

Thanks!

For what its worth, I have 14' Rubicon wheels and tires on mine with no issues. Should work fine as long as you don't have the adjustable suspension.

These are after I put the RRO leveling kit on the front. No issues before the install, I just wanted to level the stance.

Re: Wrangler Wheels & Tires on 2014 Limited

Here's my 2014 Summit on 2013 18 Sahara Rims and 255/18 r70's

QL@OR2


Park Mode


No rubbing that I could ever tell.

I really like the look, but I took them off because the TPMS doesn't match up with my 2014 WK2. Need to purchase new TPMS and I'll put them back on.
P.S. I hate dash warning lights

Are those rubi wheels 17s or 18s?

Re: Wrangler Wheels & Tires on 2014 Limited

Looks great. I am looking to do the same. Do you know if you have the bigger breaks? I have the ecodiesel with the tow package and wondered if the breaks I have will clear the wheels?
