Will the wheels bolt onto your WJ? Yes

Will the tires fit without rubbing? Not likely

Re: Will 18" wrangler wheels for my 2004 wj?

Hello, just my 2 cents, I have a 2002 limited german spec and my summer tires are 255/55R18's and i have no rubbing at all. I have seen from others that this is what you need for rubber if you are running stock suspension. It works out to the same 29 inch tire. However, I got the rims with the jeep and the manufacturer is no longer in business (Deszent, i think) so I dont know if backspacing is the same as the JK ones you are looking at.

If they're from a JK they'll bolt right up. If they're from a TJ then no.

Daily driver for 2 years now with 255/65r17's and there is a slight rub full lock at medium flex. Narrower might be better but I do like the way my current size looks on it - definitely meatier than the factory 16's and what was on it when I got it.

There are 17" and 18" versions of the JK wheels. I think the Saharas get the 18" wheels.
