18" Sahara wheel and 35" tire?

I'm wondering if a 35x12.5x18 will fit on the optional 7.5" wide 18" Sahara wheel. Any thoughts? Seems the 7.5" width would be too narrow. If it would work, it would be nice to be able to use that wheel, add a set of Spidertrax spacers and run 35's.

It should be fine. Someone in the TJ side does 35x12.5 on a 7" rim. It's better to be on the thinner side of the spectrum because it holds the bead better. (But tire shops will probably give you trouble about it... I had trouble with 15x8 and a 12.5" wide tire.)

It should fit, but it would probably be best (at least safest IMO) to follow the tire manufacturer's suggested rim size.

It helps protect the rims to "overtire." Just ensure you've got a tough sidewall to take the hits.
