    From the research I've done, knowing I have 18" wheels, it appears we Sahara drivers can safely go from the stock 255/70/18 to 285/70/18 with no rubbing, spacers, lift, etc. Might be able to stretch to a 295/70/18. This takes you from stock 32's up to 33 1/2-34.

    You are correct. I had 295/70/17's on my stock Sahara before the lift. The wheels are +18 offset. 295's may not work on stock +44 offset.

    Nice!

    What wheels are/were those? And I noticed you didn't have your spare on there. Was it because it doesn't fit on the stock carrier?

    American Outlaw wheels +18 offset. Spare wasn't on because I was about to install the reinforcement bracket.

    I’ve been scrolling and came across your Jeep! What method did you use to get your whole grille black? I have a Jeep Wrangler Sahara and the trim around the headlight is silver and so is the trim on the grille and I’m looking for ways to make them all black. Thank you! :)

Shows an obstruction at the bottom. No rubbing, have room for larger tires in the future. 20190701_172212.jpg

    Installed 275/70R18 BFG K02's on my 2018 JLUS's stock 18"x7.5" rims. No rub, no spacing, no lift. Fit great. Anything in 18" rims is forced into load type E as a LT tire is required (Lite Truck) but the K02's don't feel much different from the stock duelers and they look awesome. No difference in noise, bit bouncier ride which is fine. Only issue is the speedometer is slightly off and could be recalibrated but dealers are saying that's like $300 so we'll see on that one. I've attached a chart to show the speedometer difference when upgrading to this size tire from stock. Thanks to everyone in this thread helping a newb out! Your input has been much appreciated.

    No, I mean biggest wheel you can fit without getting wheel spacers or offset wheels to prevent sidewall rub on full turns.
