from 18" to 17" need same size tire

I have an 08 GC Overland with 245/60R 18" tires.

I found a set of original rims off a 2007 Rubicon with 255/75-17"

The 18" and the 17" rims are both factory. I don't know the width of either set of rims.

Would I be able to get a set of tires to put on the 17" rims that would be the same diameter as the 18" tires so my spedo would give me the same readings?

Re: from 18" to 17" need same size tire

Yes. 245/65/17.

Jeep Grand Cherokee WK - Wheels and tires

You could also keep the 255/75/17 and lift the WK to fit them

Also, the wheel widths are the same, the backspacing is what is different between the WK and JK factory wheel.
