18 inch wheels from a JK - will they fit my 02 WJ ?

I have the opportunity to get these - but wasnt sure they would fit. I know the lug pattern is the same but wasnt sure about fitment on a stock 02 Grand Cherokee Limited. Any input on this? They are 18s off a JK - with 255/70/18 tires.

This is my first post - I have found this site to be a wealth of info - thanks guys !!

I'm pretty sure the tires will fit. You could possible have some rub at the right/left locks depending on the sag of your Jeep but nothing major.

They will rub, you will need a lift and wheel spacers to accomodate that size tire under a WK.

I've got 255/70-18 on 18" JK Sahara wheels on a 2008 WK with no lift or spacers for almost two weeks now. Maybe a little rub at full lock, but I don't hit the UCA bolt.
