Rubicon Wheel and Tire ?

Does anyone know if the 17" Rubicon Wheel with the BFG Mud-Terrain in a 255/75/R17 will fit on my 2011 WK2 Overland?

I have a Silver Overland with the factory 20" and plan on swapping them out for the Rubicon Mountain Edition wheels that are Mineral Grey.

a 32fits all depends on back spacing. i would say bolt one on the front and see. tire will fit fine, rim spacing should be ok too.

it shoud be fine.

If you have HD brakes on the Overland (V8 or tow package I think), then I don't think there is enough caliper clearance for 17inch wheels. I'm pretty sure you need 18s, Moabs work too.

Thanks for the feedback so far. Does anyone else know about Coldcase's comment? I do have the v8 and the tow package, so if that is the case I would need the 18s.

Will not fit with V8. 18 is the smallest wheel size due to brake clearance.
