Will these fit a 2018 Wrangler Unlimited JL Sahara?
DUELER A/T REVO 3 LT275/70R18 LRE OWL ALL TERRAIN TIRE
Looking to beef up the look of my currently stock Sahara, and thinking of starting with the wheels.

I can't answer your question directly. however, I did something similar on my JLU. I recommend using tiresize.com as a tool for comparing potential tire sizes.

Hopefully Sahara owners can also chime in with their experience.

That tire should work well.
Its about 0.5" less diameter and width than the spec 285 70 17 KO2 tire for the JL.
I'm also assuming you still have stock 18" JL Sahara wheels...

My Sahara has 275/70R18 BF Goodrich KO2s: they are 1.1 inches taller and 0.8 inches wider than the OE 255/70R18 Bridgestone Duelers. They fit without a lift and without rubbing.

PS - If I were to replace the OE tires with a larger set, I'd choose an All Terrain with a more aggressive tread pattern than the Bridgestone Duelers.

I am looking at the Duelers to save a little money due to Black Friday sales at Costco. How different would the tread be on the KO2’s you are using. The duelers look quite more aggressive than the OEM treads.

From what is being said, I would not be able to use the OEM wheels with these tires though?

is the a recommendation for larger tires that would not require new wheels as well?

thank you everyone so much for the assistance!

A 275 tire will fit on a stock rim.

Yes, you can re-use your OE wheels. That’s what I did. You won’t have issues re-using your OE wheels with 275/70R18 size tires.

This is the Dueler Revo 3
813a3da4-5e43-4f86-87e1-ffd61f78885e_1.3c5a22a0e46a74b1695ea4505dd8cbbf.jpg


This the KO2

Only you can decide which one you like better.

Only thing I’d add is: there are at least three different tires sold under the “Bridgestone Dueler Revo” name. Make sure Costco is selling the one you want.

Good luck!

I use 1010tires.com (tools and tech > tire size calculator). Punch in the stock size tire, then do a manual search to compare to the size you want to use. The speed variance needs to be under 3% (in Canada), but the closer to 0 the better. I wouldn't use those tires myself.

The left is stock. Right is your chosen tire.

What would everyone recommend that could be used on the OEM 18’s that would add some height and look?

I was actually looking at Costco deals as well. My original plan was 35 in KO2's. Ten I started looking at more street friendly tires like Revo's and Cooper AT3 4S. My KO2's are slippery in the rain. I am going to try driving slower. I think a larger Bridgestone Revo would look good.
