New to the jeep world need help!!

What's up people,
I recently bought a 2012 jk sahara unlimited. I am running the stock 18s on 255/70/18 tires . I wanna purchase the mamba m13 18" wheels and run them on 285-65/18 tires . The wheel is a 9" wheel with a -6 offset . My question is will I need a lift or will the stock suspension handle this wheel/tire combo without any rub or issues ???

The new tire is only slightly over 32 inches, so you should be OK there, but the width is only listed at about 11 inches which does not leave much room for play in the sidewall, esp if you plan on airing down. I would go with a stock rim width of about 7.5 inches or 8 inches if it were me. Also, consider going to a 17 inch tire/rim, rims and tires are much less money with a wider selection (no pun intended).
