18" Polished Wrangler wheels

Bought some brand new Jeep Wrangler take offs. 18" Polished wheels with Bridgestone 255/70r18 duelers A/T.

Want to put them on my 2007 Commander Limited 2wd. Can I get by with just a 1/4" spacer in the front? My truck never goes off the road. Alos should I put on some wheel spacer too?

Yes. 1/4 spacer is all you'll need

Ok so wheel spacers are unnecessary with the 18" Safari Wheels. 1/4" spacers are unnecessary.

The tires are the same size (32") as the rubicon tires.

I have 255/70r18 Duelers and they rub a bit even with 5100's @ 1.5" lift, but I have less backspacing due to custom wheels, similar to running 1.5" spacers IIRC.

I was under the impression that all wrangler take off wheels needed a small spacer due to the caliper. Sorry

No worries. All the 17" wheels require a small spacer to clear the front calipers. Alternatively you can grind the caliper a bit to allow them to clear.
