JK Sahara Unlimited w/WK2 Overland Wheels!

MALL CRAWLER ALERT!

I'm gonna get hell for this, I know, but I don't mind a little heckling as long somebody can answer my question. I wanna put the WK2 Overland 20" wheels on my black Sahara Unlimited JK and keep the tire size the same. Here's what I've found in my research:

Stock Sahara wheels are:
18"x7.5"
5"x5" (5"x127mm) Lug Pattern
45mm Offset
6" Backspacing
32" Tires

2011 GC Overland Wheels are:
20"x8"
5"x5" (5"x127mm) Lug Pattern
56mm Offset
6.5" Backspacing

Are those numbers correct? Will it fit? I'm hoping they can just mount right on with no adjustments. I read somewhere that the 18" Sahara wheels mount right on to the WK2, but I want it to be the other way around. I can't post a pic of my idea in the thread because I'm a noob so I uploaded a poorly photoshopped pic of my idea as my profile pic. C'mon, does it really look that bad? I think it looks pretty BAD-A! Thanks in advance for the help! BTW, I have a '99 TJ for off-road. This is my daily driver.

Im not exactly sure. But as you posted, the BS is not as large on the WK2 wheels. So it may rub. If it does. Just buy spacers and fix the .5 inch bs difference

If those numbers are correct you will need spacers.
A set of 1-1/2" spacers will give the needed clearance and a better look with the tires out at the edge of the flares.

Don't forget lots of chrome and a lowering kit too.

Thank you for not posting pictures, BTW. It will keep the hate down.

unlimited rims to wk2 overland hemi

HI, The goodyear fortera's on my 2011 GC Overland Hemi are terrible in the snow to the point of them being a safety hazard. I currently run OEM 20's and have located a set of 18's off an Unlimited with good rubber. Hoping to run them in the winter months. Can anyone advise me if they will fit on my Jeep? As I understand, I've got the HD brakes with oversize calipers obviously. Any direction would be appreciated.
