I'm about to place an order, but I would like to seek some reassurance that the following will fit please...

wheel: black rhino rokus 17x9.5
offset: -18mm
bolt pattern: 5x127
tires: nitto ridge grappler 315/70/17

I have a 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon on stock suspension.

Edit: I shamefully admit that my Jeep will mostly just be a "mall crawler"

If you’re going to add 35’s, why not add a lift kit as well as a tazer to correct for the new tires?

I do have plans of lifting it eventually, but I need to spread out the costs...I'm poor. =(

Should fit fine for street use and mild off road flexing.

Just be sure to reset the programmed tire size. I highly recommend the Tazer light or mini, if the features should happen to tickle your fancy. If not, there are other more cost efficient alternatives.

I think we all get it. =)

Once you go 35’s you open up a can of worms to which there is no going back. Just recommending getting it all done in one trip.

As @Headbarcode mentioned, it’s a good idea to recalibrate the speedo via Tazer lite.

I installed a level kit until I could decide what lift kit to go with and availability.. The level kit was just under $100 and took about 2.5hrs to install, that will give you the look of a lift on a budget.

Since you're not looking to hit the Rubicon trail anytime soon, it'll be fine doing the 35's for now and save up for a quality lift kit and all its necessary peripherals.

Here's a pic of all stock except a set of 315/70-17 BFG KO2's (a smaller 35)

Yea, I know that 17x9 -12mm on 315/70/17 works fine...I'm just not sure about 17x9.5 -18mm on the same tires. how does that extra .5 width of the wheels and extra 6mm affect things?
