Yep. Many of us have done it; no problems. Just realize that your odometer and speedometer are low. My switch was a 3.2% difference (speedometer reading of 72mph is actually 75mph). The tire even fits in the spare tire well if you remove the plastic trays. Some people don't up-size the spare. I did so I can do a five-wheel rotation, and to not have a size difference after changing a flat. I went with the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure w/kevlar.

Yep, I've got Hankook 275/65/R18 ATs on mine. No dramas even in park mode.
