JK Sahara wheels on the WK? Any pics?

Hi guys. Picked up an 09 loaded laredo for the wife. I hate the stock wheels and just so happen to have a set of 09 Sahara tires and wheels hanging on my garage wall. Did any of you wk guys install these wheels on your rig and if so did you have to change the tire size or mod the wheel well at all. We traded my 05 in and it had the overland chrome on. I know they were 18's like the saharas. Appreciate your help or input, Dave!

18's fit. My friend that parks in the same garage as me had them on his. He's also apart of **********.org (Fabian, a.k.a iJeep). You can go there to contact him for more info.

Here's some pics he posted.

Wheels look great, were any modifications required to avoid tire rub?

No mod needed here, infact the reduced offset of the JK wheels, provided a bit more "bolt" clearance up front.

If I swap on JK wheels to my WK, do I have to use spacers?

Personal experience with a 3" lift:

No spacers needed for "the bolt", the caliper, or the Pinch Weld with the OE tires 255/70-18 (32" x 10") that came with the wheels. However, they will rub the inner frame rail on full lock either direction. If you go wider you will need spacers.

Others have stated that this remains true even without the lift but I can not confirm that personally.
