2012 Sahara Limited Wheels on a 1998 Sahara?

My 16 year old is interested in buying an almost new set of wheels and tires off a 1012 Sahara. I see all types of spacers available and think we can make them work? The Bridgestones have just 2K miles on them and we can get all 5 for $875 including the like new wheels. I think it will be a great upgrade but I'm an old man now. Does anyone know if these will work?

First the bolt pattern is different. JK is 5x5 and I believe the Tj is 5x4.5
Spidertrex is a good brand for adapters/spacers to make it work.

The stock Saraha tire is a 32" diameter. If your daughters jeep is all stock .. It won't fit. Max tire size for a Tj is a 31"
A option for this is a small budget boost or spacers that sit on top the coils. You are looking a $100-$200 depending on if the kit comes with shocks or not. Adapters are made to fit the stock shocks to cut cost.

This was I believe a 98 Tj we put my 32" BF's on. Also installed
- adapters
-RE budget boost w/shocks
