Jk to wk wheel swap

I own a 2012 WK2 and a 2012 JK and noticed that the wheel lug patterns seem to be identical. The WK2 has 265/60 x18's and the JK 265/70 x 17's. The difference in height is about 1-1/2". My question is, are these wheels interchageable? I "interchanged" wheels from another make years ago and they fit fine. But I ended up tearing the steel wheel off the hub after a few miles of driving. Although the lug pattern was accepting, the different model year of the wheels vs. the car caused the problem. Where the wheel snugs up against the hub was the issue. The offset was different even though it all looked fine from the outside. Would my Jeeps have similar issues? Thx-
