2012 Wrangler Saharas

I found the 18inch Sahara's that I would love to have on my 06 WK HEMI. I've read so much about whether or not they will fit nad have only gotten more confused. Can anyone say yes or no to this? I'd prefer to not run spacers.

Thanks for the help. This is the last step before I get my lift done with some new meats and wheels

Thanks for the help!

Re: 2012 Wrangler Saharas

I'm pretty sure the Saharas will fit without spacers but I am no 100%. If the guy is nice, maybe you could bolt one up and see if it clears?

Yea. I was gonna ask but wanted to see if i could get a yes or no from someone on here first. I wanna paint the inside of the wheels to match my body color and the center cap, so i hope they fit.

Re: 2012 Wrangler Saharas

i run 2011 saharas on my 07 WK- i run a 1/4" spacers for the hell of it and they clear everything just fine. i like the 18s as they have ample room for the calipers as opposed to the 17s

Re: 2012 Wrangler Saharas

I have an 08 wk, which I believe actually has a larger caliper than the 06. These rims clear my caliper by 1/16" or a hair more. I have not had a problem in over a year.
