Re: what do i need [if anything] to make these fit?

Rim size isn't the problem. It's the tread height. The second number(70) in the series of numbers. Put one on the front and see if it rubs when the wheel is pinned. Or try calling a local tire shop

Re: what do i need [if anything] to make these fit?

they will fit... i've seen them on a couple WK's. I believe you will still need to buy a 1/4" wheel spacer to clear the caliper bracket.

If youre going to get new shocks, you may as well pay for the lift kit.

They won't fit unless you get some spacers. It would be best if you go with a 2" Budget Lift.

Re: what do i need [if anything] to make these fit?

I would definitely swap out your struts/shocks. It will save you so much headache down the road when your OEM shocks go out. I mean I was able to get all four Bilsteins for $300 (local mechanic) and my RC lift for $160 shipped.

TKirkUMD is gonna have his RC lift forsale... make him an offer, then all you need is Bilsteins. Done.
