Have you noticed any change in performance as far as get up and go with those bigger tires?Bought these in Virginia for $600, 2017 Sahara wheels and tires, before moving to Alaska. Trying to keep the 75th rims nice. Heard that rubbing the brake calipers are a hit and miss with the WK2. Mine is a 2016. The front left rubbed a tad, I shaved it with a file (last pic), took 20 secs. Right side was fine. This is definitely worth it. The Ecopia tires didn't look like they were going to cut it. Reviews have the Dueler A/T pretty good in the snow, which we get a lot here. And they're bigger! 255/70/18
Hey thanks for posting....I want to add Rubicon JL wheels to my 2020 JGC Trailhawk when I get it. Its currently stuck at the body vendor (I believe Rock rails installed) and due to the shut down its just sitting. I think Ill have to get spacers also. I was told that if you go with spacers get the ones that are hubcentric. I added a link for custom spacers that I found on this website a while back. They are pricey but if you don't want to have any vibration I think they will be well worth the price. They also make ones that are hubcentric to the wheel and also to the vehicle. The hubcentric are the ones with the lip around the center hole. The last thing is I'm not sure what size to get like 8MM, 9MM, 10MM. I want the smallest ones that will work. I did buy from these guys with my Ram 1500 and I think the largest I could get was 10MM the guy called me before making them and I believe that's what he said. I think Ill call him before I order.I know this thread is a bit old, but maybe I can shed a little light on the "will they fit the caliper or not" question.
Due to the thread I went out and got a set of Sahara wheels and tires last weekend. They look great. I'm super happy about 'em, so thanks y'all for that.
On to the caliper question, it's going to be related to how much wear you have on your brake pads. Follow me on this one, as I ran into the same issue on my '05 with 2" lift on Rubicon wheels many, many moons ago.
They fit and worked just fine for while until I replaced my brake pads. Then I had to get wheel spacers. It's always fun to have to remove your brand new pads and put the old ones back on after finding out the wheels no longer fit. Hope that helps a bit.
Anyway, my 2014 at 107,000:

I'm going to have to get the wheel spacers when I replace the pads on this one.
Secondly, the stock tire pressure sensors from the old wheels work just fine on the new wheels.
I would have replaced them at this mileage, but on my old WK it was still running the original sensors at 325,000 miles so I saw no need to proactively replace these yet.
I'll add that if you start looking at going at this route I would be aware of the age of the tire on the wheel. Running 6 year old tires, even with good tread life left can be sketchy.
Take care of yourselves during this nutty time.
