I have an 06 Jeep Commander Limited with stock 17" rims. A guy is selling his brand new stock 18" rims and tires from his 07 Wrangler. The size is 255/70R18 112S. Will these fit my 06 Commmander? Help a girl out that knows nothing about tires. Thanks!

Wheels will fit... but tires may be pushing it without a lift... those are 32" tires so you would be awful close to the bolt on the front.

I would actually like to put a 2" lift on it. Would that work with those tires, rims & lift?

They SHOULD... but you should always try to test fit tire and wheel combinations before committing to buy them.

as far as i know us commander fans are kinda screwed on the wheels and tires. we have a 5x5 or 5x127 bolt pattern. the wrangler does not. they will not fit. the only ones that will fit are from commander,grand cherokee, pacifica, and for some reason a older impala. sure there are others, so dont fry me on the boards!! you just got to be careful when buying rims. always ask if the bolt pattern is 5x5 or 5x127. i almost got screwed on rims, but the guy took them back. good luck finding some rims. every other bolt pattern made has cheap rims and tires on ebay except for our. go figure!!

You are wrong. The JK (what she is referring to) has a 5x5 bolt pattern. The TJ had a 5x4.5 but the JK shares the same bolt pattern as the WK and XK.

Because they are 255/70R18, they should fit as well as 255/70R17 (which I have and they fit fine - close to the bolt, but with about 1/2 inch clearance. The R18 would be irrelevant I would think because the 70 is the total tire diameter size. And the 255 width keeps it from rubbing either inside or out. But, just to be safe, I'd test fit the wheels and tires as well.

*Edited to say - that the no rub IS with a 2" lift.

Actually, you are incorrect. The 17 or 18 will make a big difference. The 70 indicates that the sidewall is 70% of the tires width. So, the 18 will definitely be taller than the 17.

Damn, you are right, my tire knowledge failed me.

If you're willing to use spacers, you can get a wheel adapter which is a spacer with a different bolt pattern on the wheel side. This would give you an almost unlimited choice of wheels.

He was wrong anyway, the bolt pattern for the 2007 Wrangler is the same as the Commander. Only the backspacing/offset is different.

Just trying to offer a way to use pretty much any wheel you want.

This is an old thread, but what's the conc. here, I'm thinking of doing the same thing...would you need spacers, or not??

Here's a link to a DiscountTire calculator.

http://www.discounttire.com/dtcs/infoTireMath.dos

The wheel tire combination that you are considering is 32" diameter. I am running 255/75/17's and they are also 32" diameter. Required 2 inch lift, 1.5 inch wheel spacers and trimming of the plastic wheel well liner and hammering down on the pinch welds in the wheel well (in the front) to clear.

I can't speak personally for the lug nut pattern but others have. The only other consideration is wheel offset. But it would probably be alright.

EDIT: I didnt see the post before mine when I posted. Some info is repeated.

The 255/70R18 will be exactly an inch taller then the 255/70R17. With that being said it would be the identical size to a 255/75R17 BFG Mud Terrain that a lot of guys on the forum are running. With a 2 inch lift, wheel spacers and minor trimming of the inner wheel well plastic and bending the pinch weld they will fit. Those saraha wheels have the same bolt pattern and back spacing as the 17 inch Rubicon wheels that members on this forum also run.

Sounds good, with tax season upon us, I'm seriously thinking about doing a lift and tires...

OME springs, 1.25 spacers, and 18 inch JK wheels.

A little rubbing, but nothing to worry about.
