Rubicon Wheels/Tires on Unlimited Sport

Hi all,

Looking to swap out the stock wheels on my 2013 Wrangler Unlimited Sport with some Rubicon wheels I found on CL. The wheels are the same size but they have larger tires on them. Current tire size is 255/75R17 and the ones I'm looking to buy are BF Goodrich All Terrain AT 275/70R17

Any insight if this will be ok or will it cause problems?

They are nearly identical in overall diameter, but the new ones are nearly an inch wider. You should be fine. Worst case scenario, you could always pick up two pair of wheel spacers, if you notice any rubbing, for about $200.
