Will 2006 rubicons fit 2000 wj??

Am looking at some 2006 Jeep Rubicon wheels. 245's 16 X 8 with stock Goodyear Wrangler MTR's (not kevlar). Its a full set of 5. 4 tires with 5-7000 miles on them the spare has zero on it all for $500. Will this fit into my '00 laredo? I love the look of the wheels,will get Plastidip'd or powder coated black depending on how deep my pockets are. Also keeping in mind i plan a 2" lift sometime soon. Any help appreciated.

Thanks everybody, I think the stock rims will do for now, of course with a dip.
Can't wait to start uploading the build photos. It's amazing how a little work and inexpensive paint and plasti dip can transform the look of a car.

As well, you can do the newspaper thing or the card trick. That's what I used when I did my spare wheel.
