Will a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo fit 255/75 R17

Okay so I have done the search on this and get conflicting answers so I thought I would start a new thread. I have a stock (no lift/leveling) 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with the I6 motor and currently have 255/75 R15 on there. I found a set of 5 255/75 R17 BF Goodrich mud-terrain tires and rims off a Rubicon for $600 with barely any use. Will these work for my Jeep without any mods?

BFGoodrich says that size is a 32.1 in diameter. They will not fit stock and you be able to turn. You'll tear the inner fenderwells liners and tires to shreds.

And the bolt pattern is different, as well as more backspacing.

I'm running those on my jeep. But I have 4" of lift and wheel adaptors. If you're just looking for cheap tires and don't want to mod your jeep, look somewhere else. You'll spend less money buying new tires in the correct size.
