You guys think I'll notice a road noise difference moving from the stock Bridgestone Dueler 255/70R18 AT to the Rubicon stock KO2 LT285/70R17? I know there will be some increase in road noise, but do you think it will be noticeable (by my wife)? ;)

As you said there will be "some" road noise. A large increase I don't know.

Solution, install them before she drives it and she won't notice any difference! :cwl:

When searching for wheels they should have a fitment section that you can use to find out if they fit and they will give the offset.... All depends on the wheel style and size

18 OR 20 inch rim won't effect mpg more than tire size
Did u notice any drop off from gas mileage when you installed your rims ?
Maybe I will try the 20’s then ..I’m just afraid of what that price will be lol ..Did you get yours with the tires installed?

Really like this combo. I have black Sahara JL. What is the bolt pattern? I know it 5 bolts but what is the other number.

I'm picking up my Rubicon Wheels/Tires this afternoon. My jeep is still sitting a the rail yard 45 minutes from the dealer (4 days sitting so close!) My photoshop work convinced me this is way cooler than stock sahara:

Wheels look nice! What are they? I'm looking at 18" wheels for our white JLU Sport. But there are so many stinkin' options! :headbang:
